Changing Skyline: John C. Anderson Apartments, LGBT-friendly and urban-friendly
Posted on Friday, Jan 17, 2014
I had to go deep into The Inquirer's archive to look up the name John C. Anderson. A rising star in Philadelphia politics, he was a first-term city councilman from Wynnefield when he died suddenly in 1983, at age 41. Anderson was gay, and his life was cut short by AIDS. But in keeping with the times, none of that was mentioned in his obituary.
