Frank Anderson (23 October 1913 – 6 March 1997) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Carlton in the VFL.

Anderson was born at Glenhuntly and attended school at West Brunswick. He started his career at Brunswick as a forward but later played most of his football in defence.[1] He was a premiership player with Carlton in 1938 and a Victorian interstate representative in 1941. Anderson finished second in Carlton's best and fairest on three separate occasions.

After leaving Carlton he became captain-coach of Preston in the VFA.[2] After a couple of years Anderson took up the coaching role at Cobram.[3]
