Eric T. Anderson of Duluth

This photo of Eric T. Anderson, age 56 circa 1963, born in Duluth, is part of the collection at the Art Institute of Chicago. It was taken by Danny Lyon.

I don’t know the story or the man. Do you?

I have looked. I can tell you that there were no Eric Andersons born in Duluth between 1900-1934, at least according to the Minnesota Historical Society records. Only nine in the whole state during that period, apparently. 

Not finding much in the census records, either. I first mistook this photo as being taken on Gold Street in Duluth, which is an odd little residential street that was platted but never really happened up by UMD. But I think the Gold Street was in whatever town this guy was hanging out in, one I can't pinpoint.
