Glenn Malcolm Anderson (February 21, 1913 – December 13, 1994) was an American politician. He was the 37th Lieutenant Governor of California and later served as congressman. He was a member of the Democratic Party.[1]

Anderson was born on February 21, 1913 in Hawthorne, California. He received a Bachelor of Arts from University of California, Los Angeles in 1936. He worked as a real estate developer and served in the United States Army.

Anderson was mayor of Hawthorne from 1940 to 1943 and a member of the California State Assembly from 1943 to 1950. He served as Lieutenant Governor of California from 1959 to 1967 but was defeated in a bid for a third term by Republican Robert Finch. During his office on August 13, 1965, he signed off on the orders to send 1,336 National Guard Troops into Los Angeles County, 48 hours after the Watts riots begun.

Anderson was first elected to the 91st Congress in 1968 and served 12 terms from 1969 to 1993. In Congress he became chair of the Committee on Public Works and Transportation. He decided not to run for re-election in 1992.

Anderson died on December 13, 1994[1] in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 81. He is interred in Green Hills Memorial Park, Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

The Interstate 105 in South Los Angeles is named in his honor as the "Glenn M. Anderson Freeway" but that name is rarely used. It is known colloquially as "the Century" or "the 105" freeway.
