The son of Robert Smith Anderson and Fanny (née Holly), Anderson was educated at Boise Junior College, Fort Hays College and the University of Maryland. He served in the U.S. Air Force during World War II up through the Vietnam War, retiring as a colonel. He began writing in the 1950s, with a series of columns for MATS Flyer, the magazine of the Air Force's Military Air Transport Service (later MAC Flyer, after MATS became the Military Airlift Command). Several of his books were autobiographical accounts of the adventures of Anderson, his wife, Dortha (née Power, m. 1948), and their children, Ann (Ann Kiessling), Scott (Scott Charles Anderson) and Holly. His fiction books all featured a supporting character named Colonel Cornelius C. (for "Catastrophe") Callaghan. Callaghan, a career Air Force officer, is a wheeler-dealer who uses his detailed knowledge and skill to help the lead characters, often despite regulations or higher authority. In addition to his books, Anderson wrote a monthly column for , under the titles Back Roads and Off Ramp. The last column was published two months before his death.
