Dana died Dec. 27, 2007, after a one-year struggle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
The only child of Dr. Sumner H. Friedman and Ruth Faitsch, Dana was born in Bennington, Vt., and came to Princeton from Camp Hill High School, where he excelled in football and threw hammer, discus, and shot, activities he continued at Princeton. In our junior and senior years he roomed in Henry Tower with John Gregory, Peter Harwood, Bud Ingmand, David Jones, and David Wagstaff. He took meals at Tiger Inn, majored in economics, and graduated with high honors and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
He obtained a law degree from Harvard and practiced law for Alcoa in Pittsburgh and for four years in Switzerland. After retiring in 1992, Dana returned to Vermont, where he rehabbed a historic country inn for private use, carried out pro bono community law, and was active in power weightlifting.
One week following our 45th reunion he again met Peggy Trace, a childhood neighbor. Peggy and Dana married in 2007. Peggy survives him, as do two daughters from his first marriage, Jennifer L. Bailey and Sarah M. Brennan, and his son, Dana H. The class extends sincere sympathy to his family and friends.
