A sad day, but... Wow... What a rich, full, incredible, inspiring life.
I remember the first meeting I had with Dan in 2006, talking about WWII, California wines, Vincent Price, etc. He briefly lamented he had to give up handball sometime in his 70s, which I found both funny and, even in my 30s, enviable.
I wanted to record the discussion for earSHOT, which was the Edelman podcast that I briefly hosted.
"Phil... You think we can just talk?", he asked.
I scribbled notes like a madman. Fascinating discussion. I will never forget it.
I shot this photo during the celebration of the firm's 60th Anniversary. Captured a moment for me that I couldn't quite describe at the time.
Thoughts and prayers are with the Edelman family.
