The Real Dan Fenn

January-February 2005

Due to errors at the HAA, the entry about HAA Award winner Dan Huntington Fenn Jr. '44, A.M. '72, in the November-December issue contained flaws. In fact, Fenn, of Lexington, Massachusetts, has been a class secretary since 1946 and a former president and executive commitee member of the Association of Harvard College Class Secretaries. An assistant dean of freshmen from 1946 to 1949, he was also an assistant editor of the Harvard Business Review and editor of the Business School Bulletin. More recently, he has served on his class's reunion-gift committee and led efforts to raise money for the Class of '44 War Memorial Scholarship Fund, which totals more than $2.3 million. He was also the first director of the John F. Kennedy Library, serving until 1986. A former faculty member at the Business School, he is now an adjunct lecturer with the Kennedy School's executive programs.
