G. Warren Daane ’32

Published in Dec. 5, 2001, issue

Warren died Jan. 4, 2001. He was 89.

He was a brilliant student, graduating as the top male student from Grand Rapids Central HS, summa cum laude from Princeton, and Order of the Coif from U. of Mich. Law School (1935). At Princeton he was a member of Court Club, debate team, band, and Delta Sigma Rho.

During WWII, he served in the Air Force from 1942-46, primarily in London.

He joined the Cleveland law firm of Baker, Hostetler and Patterson in 1935, and closed his office at Baker on the Cleveland Indians' Opening Day, 1998. An expert in baseball, antitrust, and constitutional law, three of his cases went to the Supreme Court.

He delighted in sports competition. In listing his greatest accomplishments in our 50th yearbook, he stated, "My marriage to Mavis Berry; our three sons; my three Supreme Court cases; and being ranked fourth in Western Father and Son Doubles."

He is survived by Mavis, his wife of 59 years; three sons, G. Warren Jr. '65, Robert, and Charles '74; seven grandchildren; and two siblings, J. Dewey and Elizabeth Davidson, to whom the class sends sincere condolences.
