Excerpt from The Life of James Dwight Dana: Scientific Explorer, Mineralogist, Geologist, Zoologist, Professor in Yale University Five phrases upon the title-page give a summary of this memoir. Professor Dana dwelt long upon the high seas, on their shores and islands and among their primitive inhabitants, so that he might be called an oceanographer or ocean-explorer; his distinction as a naturalist was gained in three great fields; and his career, from beginning to end, was identified with Yale College. In preparing the biography, which is personal rather than scientific, the subject of it is his own interpreter, and wherever his language could be introduced, or that of his correspondents, I have preferred to quote rather than to condense or rewrite what they have said. At the same time, I trust that sufficient explanations have been given to show the conditions under which the writers spoke. The task of a biographer fell to me by the confidence of Professor Dana's family, who remembered that for a considerable period while living in New Haven, as a pupil, neighbor, and friend, I knew him intimately. To Mrs. Dana the reader is indebted for the care with which she has saved and brought together the memorials of her husband's life and correspondence, and for the readiness with which she has consented to their publication. To Professor Edward S. Dana, his father's colleague in the University and in editing the American Journal of Science, special acknowledgments are also due. Free use has been made of the admirable and appreciative sketch of his father's career which appeared in 1894.
