Ches Anderson - Portrait

Head and shoulders image of Chesley (Ches) Anderson, coach of the University of Saskatchewan wrestling team.

Bio/Historical Note: Chesley (Ches) Anderson was born in 1928 in Danville, Virginia, but moved to Maryville, Tennessee at an early age and later studied art and physical education at Maryville College. After serving in the U.S. Marine Corps and completing more studies and work in physical education, he came to Saskatoon in 1958 to teach at the University of Saskatchewan's College of Physical Education. Anderson balanced his teaching and painting careers with extensive involvement in the Saskatchewan sports scene. As a wrestling coach for 13 seasons, he made history with a series of Saskatchewan firsts: he took the first Saskatchewan team to the Canadian University wrestling championships, coached Saskatchewan's team at the first Canada Winter Games in Quebec City in 1967, was the first chairman of the Saskatchewan Amateur Wrestling Association, and organized the first high school wrestling tournaments in Saskatoon. He was inducted into the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame in 1993. Anderson's watercolour paintings depicting rural and urban Saskatchewan scenes reflect his fascination with the beauty and history of the prairies. In 1992-1993, he traveled around the province looking for unique wood and stone round barns, which inspired his series “The Round Barns of Saskatchewan.” Anderson retired from teaching in 1990. He died in Saskatoon in 2018.
