|President of Dartmouth College|
|Preceded by||Francis Brown|

July 24, 1771|
|Died||August 26, 1859
The Rev. Daniel Dana (July 24, 1771 – August 26, 1859) was a minister in Newburyport, Massachusetts, and president of Dartmouth College from 1820 to 1821. He graduated from Dartmouth in the class of 1788.
Dana was reluctant to take on the presidency of an institution so recently embattled following the Dartmouth College case. He was finally convinced by the Trustees to become the fourth president in the Wheelock Succession in 1820. Plagued by ill health and exhausted by the strain of the presidency, he resigned just one year later.
