ENTIN--Daniel, died on the afternoon of January 18 at the age of 89. Dan started his professional career as a successful photographer. After years of searching for a greater meaning in life he became interested in the Agni Yoga philosophy and the art of the Russian painter/philosopher Nicholas Roerich. In 1983, Dan succeeded Sina Fosdick, then Director and President of The Nicholas Roerich Museum, at 319 West 107th Street in upper Manhattan. In his capacity as the Director of the Museum, he enhanced the collection of Roerich's paintings and broadened the scope of activities to include lectures and poetry readings. Over the next thirty-three years he established the Museum's unique reputation, building the collection and drawing visitors from all parts of the world who came to view the extraordinary paintings and attend the lectures and musical events. Daniel will be sorely missed by his loving Museum co- workers, the Board of Directors, and the myriad friends and visitors to whom he became a central figure in their search for life's meaning. Donations to the Nicholas Roerich Museum in memory of his fine spirit would be appreciated. A memorial will be held at a date to be announced.
