Biography: 

Obituary run in Stanford Magazine March/April 2013:

David Emmet Harrison, '84 (B.A. in Classical Literature, from Stanford), of Lovelock, Nev., October 23, died at 51, of a heart attack. He earned a medical degree from the U. of Washington and, following a period of debilitating health issues, he moved to Lovelock to work on a relative's farm. He connected with the authenticity and humility of rural life and he slowly began to heal. Writing for the Review-Miner gave him the opportunity to contribute to the community he'd come to love. An athlete from a young age, he covered sports and had a special rapport with local athletes of all ages, extending to their families. Survivors include his mother and his two brothers, Douglas and Patrick, '80.
