:"For the politician see Victor Emanuel Anderson, for the American painter see Victor C. Anderson"

Victor Henry Anderson (May 21, 1917, Clayton, New MexicoSeptember 20, 2001) was an award-winning poet, a Kahuna, a leader of the American Neopagan movement, and the seminal teacher of the Feri Tradition (sometimes spelled "Fairy", "Faery" or "Faerie"). An accident early in life left him nearly blind.

He was the renowned author of the "Thorns of the Blood Rose", a book of Neopagan and love poetry; "Etheric Anatomy: the Three Selves and Astral Travel" (with Cora Anderson); and "Lilith's Garden" (a companion volume to "Thorns", published posthumously).

Victor and his wife Cora Anderson initiated some of the most influential people in contemporary Paganism, such as Starhawk and the late Gwydion Pendderwen. Victor and Cora are regarded as Grand Masters of the Feri Tradition.
