Son of George B and Beatrice J Dane of California.

G. Ezra Dane was a San Francisco attorney, who, like Carl Wheat, attended Pomona College and received his law degree from Harvard. In fact, they were in the same law office for a while. Ezra wrote extensively about California.

His last book was Ghost Town (1941), the story of Columbia, Tuolumne County, which is now a state park. (His two daughters hope to republish it).

Dane's tragic death at age 37 occurred in October 1941. Many saw Dane suffering in his last few months on earth, running ragged trying to keep up with his heavy workload and demands from his wife.

One story is that he was found with a bullet through his heart in Golden Gate park. His only identification at the time was a letter to other members of the law firm he belonged to.

Many were present in Columbia in September 1947 for the unveiling of a plaque in his honor.

Humbug number 5 of Yerba Buena in 1936.
