From Grinnel to JPL Dana Lynn Ulery (1938–present) did not grow up in a typical 1950s family. Her mother, Meriam Mueller (1908–2005), was a businesswoman and active volunteer in the local hospital. Her father, Harry Tanzer, died when she was only 2 years old. Over the years the loneliness that Dana felt was replaced by her love for learning and school. Graduating from Grinnel, a small liberal arts college in Iowa, in 1959 as a double major in mathematics and English literature, Dana’s future… Expand
