I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I was a student in his 7th grade social studies class in Needham in the late 1960's. Whenever someone asks me who were the most influential people in my life, David Svendson is one of the them. Somehow in that class, he gave 12-13 yr olds, the belief that they were capable of thinking broadly and independently, and capable of researching and evaluating historical contexts leading up to current events. It was this belief in us, combined with his teaching us about things outside of the conventional textbooks, mostly about social justice and the power of a few, to create significant change, that made an impact on me at such a young age. I am forever appreciative of his gifts. My condolences to his family and friends.

Dearest Guna,

I am so, so sorry to learn of David's passing. You both were such an inspiration to so many of us. His memory will live on in our hearts.

Thinking of you and your daughter during this difficult time.

My condolences to the Svendsen family. It has been several years since I last saw David but remember him as described in the obituary. He was a kind and engaging man. I enjoyed my connection with him very much.

Guna, What sad news! Dave was such an important part of our lives in the 70's. He took my fourth grade class on a memorable trip to Boston (he even managed to have us meet up with Carol Channing at the Pru)
He was a remarkable person and I cherish knowing both of you.
May wonderful memories keep you strong and bring you joy.

Ellie
