Preston Louis Anderson was born in Greenville, Texas, on 1889 November 20 to Louis M. and Arabella Jane Barnett Anderson. In 1908, he moved to San Antonio and worked as a linotype operator for the San Antonio Light newspaper; he remained in the printing trade for many subsequent years and later worked for the San Antonio Express.

Included are programs and reports concerning the presentation of the Order of the Aztec Eagle to Anderson by the Mexican government. A letter from the Provost Marshal in San Antonio praises Anderson's work as Police and Fire Commissioner.
