Dana, Charles Anderson. (Hinsdale, New Hampshire, August 8, 1819--October 17, 1897, Glen Cove, Long Island, New York). He was one of the leaders in the Brook Farm Association, 1842; then became a journalist and man of letters; on the staff of the New York Tribune, 1847-1862; Assistant Secretary of War, 1863-1864; editor of the New York Sun, 1868. The hymn beginning "Work, and thou shalt bless the day" which Hedge and Huntington included in their Hymns for the Church of Christ, 1853, and attributed to "C. A. Dana" was probably written while he was engaged in the Brook Farm experiment. --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
