W. Harold Anderson (September 11, 1902 – June 13, 1967) was a college men's basketball coach at Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo. As a player, he played at Otterbein College, a small liberal arts college outside of Columbus, Ohio. As a coach, he was one of the first to win more than 500 games on the collegiate level. While pioneering the run and gun, up-tempo style of play, the Akron, Ohio native Anderson developed a host of All-America athletes, the most prominent being Nate Thurmond.

From 1960 to November 11, 2011,[1] the Bowling Green Falcons played basketball in Anderson Arena, named in honor of their legendary coach. Anderson was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1985. He is one of the charter inductees of the Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame.
