  Nathaniel Dean House: The Dean House Restoration and Museum Project
Dean was not only a builder of business blocks in the early years of the capital city, he was also a Regent of the University of Wisconsin, its treasurer in 1858, and a State Assemblyman from Dane County.
Realizing that some memory of the first settlers ought to be preserved and that the Dean House property was already in public hands, the group organized, studied the architecture and its stability, and persuaded the City of Madison to rent it to them for $1 a year in return for care and restoration.
During Madison's 50-year tenure, the house was left unheated in the winter, men's and ladies' rest rooms were constructed, floors were damaged by golfers' shoes, and plaster began falling from the walls and ceilings.

 James Dean in Relationships
Dean depends a great deal upon other people for emotional support and he has a large "family" of friends that care about him and treat him as kin.
James Dean tends to surround himself with people who are gentle, sensitive, peace-loving, and artistically or spiritually inclined, and there is a strong element of mutual compassion and sympathy in his personal relationships.
Dean needs to acknowledge that he has some conflicting desires (such as a partner who is very gentle and sensitive but also a powerful, dominant personality, or security and commitment in love relationships but also a lot of freedom and excitement.) Trying to satisfy both sides of the equation can be a tricky challenge.

The endorsement from Gore, who considered and rejected another White House run nearly a year ago, gives the insurgent Dean the backing of one of the party's most senior establishment figures and greater credibility in the face of charges that he is a product of the left-wing fringe.

Some of Dean's rivals were taken by surprise, and most tried to minimize the effect of the endorsement.
