I didn't find a lot of information and so cannot give you much.

 

I can find mention of a "J.A. Anderer" as a long-term member of RASC although he probably didn't live in Canada.  He was also probably a member of AAVSO.

 

I cannot certify that there is a connection to the mirror or as to the current status of J.A. Anderer.  And even if that particular J.A. Anderer whom I found does have a connection to the mirror I do not know if the connection is that he worked the mirror or that he owned it - or something else.

 

Sorry I cannot find more.
