Dana, Charles Anderson

Dana, Charles Anderson, an American journalist, was born at Hinsdale, New Hampshire, in 1819, and graduated at Harvard. Becoming subsequently the manager of the New York Tribune, he strongly discountenanced in its pages the introduction of slavery into newly-acquired territories. In 1867 he edited the New York Sun, a democratic organ. From 1857 to 1863, in conjunction with a friend, he was engaged in organising and editing the New American Encyclopedia. Several translations were also published by him. He died in 1897.
