This nine foot tall sculpture of Richard Henry Dana Jr. stands at the entrance of Dana Point Harbor.  Richard Henry Dana Jr. was a seaman, politician, lawyer and author. He is noted for being a defender of seamen and fugitive slaves. The City of Dana Point is named after him. He had traveled here (from his home in Massachusetts) and along the California coast in 1834 when the area was still part of Mexico.
