Dr. Allen servedas Alumni Selected Trustee from 1957 to 196 1 and was elected an HonoraryTrustee in 1961. He and his wife, Dorothy Dunn Allen, were kill ed in acar accident in Pennslyvania.

    Born on a farm in Macedon, New York to a family of five boys andthree girls, Dr. Allen c ompleted his bachelor of science degree at HobartCollege in 1926 and entered the second clas s of the new University ofRochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. From that point on, ho wever,he has repeatedly associated with FIRST place. After leading hisfirst-year class in ana tomy and biochemistry, he was offered the FIRSTfellowship by the School's FIRST chairman, Dr . George W. Corner, toassist in teaching microscopic anatomy and to collaborate with Dr. Corn eron research to identify the corpus luteum, a female hormone which hadbeen predicted 26 yea rs earlier as of critical importance duringpregnancy. The result of this interruption in hi s medical training wasthe role as point man for the FIRST research team to announce the FIRST isolation of a female hormone--now identified as progesterone.

    Along the way, Dr. Allen earned a master's degree in anatomy and amedical degree in medi cine. In 1935, Dr. Allen was the FIRST recipientof the ELI LILLY AWARD in Biological Chemist ry, for "best biochemicalresearch by an American under 30 years of age". During his fourteen years at Rochester, he also completed a residency in obstetrics andgynecology and was an assi stant professor in that specialty during thefinal two years.
    In 1940, Dr. Allen's career path took him to St. Louis, where he waschairman of the Depa rtment of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the WashingtonUniversity School of Medicine for the ne xt 30 years. His first wifeJulia Gardner Allen died in 1941, and his second wife, Dorothy Du nn(Esley) Allen, was a University alumna of the Class of 1926 who had oncebeen secretary to h is mentor, Dr. Corner.

    Dr. Allen recieved honorary degrees from Hobart College in 1940 andfrom the University o f Rochester in 1957. As part of the University'sCentennial commemoration, he was also one o f 13 alumni to be awarded aspecial Centennial Citation, not only in recognition of distinguis hedachievements in their own fields, but also to pay tribute through them toall University gr aduates. Dr. Allen was cited as "FIRST graduate of ourown Medical School to assume a top pro fessorship in another one".

    After retirement from Washington University in 1971, the Allensrelocated to Maryland. D r. Allen joined the University of Maryland as aprofessor of obstetrics and gynecology and lat er became as assistantdean, while Mrs. Allen became a prize winning weaver and oli painter.

    The Board wishes to express heartfelt sympathy for this doubletragedy to the entire fami ly, especially to Dr. Allen's daughter, LucilleAnderson, to Nelson Allen as sole surviving br other, and to sistersMargaret Baker and Mildred Capron.

    The above letter is only an inkling of the accomplishments of Dr. WillardMyron Allen.
