William Stafford Anderson spent one year at St. Andrew's from 1909 to 1910.
Anderson was a civil engineer living in St. John's when he enlisted in the 1st Newfoundland Regiment on 11 September 1914 (Regimental #418) and was one of its first 500 members. He sailed for the UK and repeatedly found himself in trouble with the law. He was court-martialled and eventually discharged at Camp Stobs near Hawick, Scotland on 30 July 1915, having been "convicted by the civil power of Felony [fraud] (King's Regulation 398(x))".
After returning he worked in Canada and Africa at a variety of odd jobs and died sometime around 1930.
