A certified public accountant, Anderson earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics in 1947 and Master of Business Administration in 1949 from Stanford University where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He was called back into service during the Korean War and served in the Naval Cost Inspection Service, assigned to Westinghouse Electric as a resident cost inspector, where he also worked following the war as an accounting manager.
