Carroll W. Dawn, 51, controller of the American Association of School Administrators for the past five years, died Thursday at Fairfax Hospital following a heart attack.

Mr. Dawn was born in Decatur, Ill. He moved to Washington at an early age and graduated from Central High School. He earned a bachelor's degree in accounting at George Washington University.

He worked as a supervisor and division manager for the Liberty Loan Corp. for more than 15 years. From 1964 to 1967, he worked in the company's Rhode Island office before returning here.

He served in the Navy during World War II.

Mr. Dawn was a member of St. Marks Lutheran Church in Springfield. He had been president of the Orange Hunt Civic Association, and had served for several years as a Club scoutmaster in Springfield.

He is survived by his wife, Lucy, and a son, William, of the home in Springfield; two sisters, Faith Smith, in Taylorville, Ill., and Jane Passett, of Springfield, Ill.; two brothers, Robert J., of Dunn Loring, and Ralph C., of Tantallon, Md., and his stepmother, Sylvia Dawn, of Takoma Park.

The family suggests that expressions of sympathy may be in the form of contributions to the American Heeart Association.
