Howie Anderson Bio

My first years were spent on a small resort on Big Toad Lake. I graduated from Detroit Lakes High School, where I was active in sports. I graduated from Hamline University where I played football and ran track and then, having married my junior high sweetheart, Linda, moved to Honolulu and earned my Ph.D. at the University of Hawaii. After teaching for a time, I accepted a positionin theological education in The Twin Cities, focused upon Native Americans, which led to becoming an Episcopal Priest. I worked all across Minnesota for the Episcopal Diocese, had parishes in Duluth, Washington, DC at the National Cathedral, and finally in Los Angeles. We had a cabin on Cotton Lake for over 40 years which was “home” as we lived around the country, which our daughter and her family now own. Linda and I retired to our home on Bad Medicine Lake and yet another beautiful Becker County Lake to call home.
