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.
