Subseries 2. St. John's College, 1938-1949

Scope and Content Notes:

As a member of the Board of Visitors and Governors, Allen played a vital role in the administration of the College. He lent his name to the College in order to procure endowments and establish other fundraising groups such as founding the Friends of St. John's. He helped reconfigure their education program and promote St. John's achievements and programs by writing articles in the local newspaper and other publications such as the Atlantic Monthly. Included in this subseries is correspondence between the College and the Department of Navy, who wanted to expand the Naval Academy by purchasing part of St. John's campus. Due to the overlapping nature of the Committee of Development, Resource Committee, and Board of Visitors and Governors these materials are all filed under the latter's name.
