Adam Saig Anderson (1869-1944) was a photographer in Provo, Utah. He was brother of George Edward Anderson, and apprenticed with Charles R. Savage.
Adam Saig Anderson was born to George and Mary Ann Anderson in Salt Lake City, Utah on January 23, 1869. As he grew into adulthood, Adam worked as an intern for various individuals including Charles R. Savage - a famous British-born photographer whose photos of the linking of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railways and the Cornerstone ceremony of the Salt Lake temple were published in magazines including "Harper's Weekly." After finishing his apprenticeships, he opened up a gallery in Provo around 1890, but later sold it to Thomas Christian Larson in 1910. On March 18, 1944, he passed away in Provo, Utah.
