Biographical Note

Dr. James Edward Allen worked for the New York State Education Department for twenty-two
years, serving in a number of executive positions.

Dr. Allen was born in Elkins, West Virginia and received his B.A. from Davis and Elkins College in
1932. He studied economics and public finance at Princeton University and in 1942 received a
masters degree in education from Harvard University and in 1945 earned a Ph.D, also in education.
He began his professional career in the West Virginia State Education Office and was engaged in
educational research at both Princeton and Harvard. From 1945 to 1947 Dr. Allen was an assistant
professor of education at Syracuse University.

In 1947 Dr. Allen joined the N.Y.S. Education Department and in 1950 was appointed Deputy State
Commissioner of Education. Five years later he was appointed Commissioner of Education and
President of the University of the State of New York and he held this position for fourteen years
serving until February 1969 when he was appointed Assistant Secretary for Education in the United
State Department of Health, Education and Welfare and U.S. Commissioner of Education. He served
at this post briefly, resigning in June 1970 when it became clear he could no longer work with the
Nixon administration because of strong disagreements over education policy and other issues. In
October 1970 Dr. Allen joined the faculty of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and
International Affairs at Princeton University and remained there until his untimely death on October
18, 1971.

Throughout his career Dr. Allen emphasized desegregating schools and literacy programs and was
an expert in educational finance and fiscal policy. He holds more than twenty-five honorary degrees
and has been honored by many state and national organizations and societies. He has written widely
for various journals, magazines and newspapers.

Dr. Allen’s personal papers predominantly include articles and speeches made while Commissioner
of Education of the State of New York and as U.S. Commissioner of Education. Also included are
personal and professional correspondence and other materials from his time in the Woodrow Wilson
School of Public Affairs at Princeton. Dr. Allen served as a consultant on education for projects in
the states of New Jersey and Massachusetts and his related findings are also found in the collection.
His honorary degrees and other memorabilia are included.

The original order of this collection was a combination of chronological order and subject headings
that corresponded to the position Dr. Allen held at the time the record was created and this
arrangement has been maintained. Materials from the his final year of life, 1970, were less organized
and a filing arrangement for these items had to be created. Original folder headings were used
whenever possible. The original order has been maintained where applicable and most sub-series are
organized in chronological order.

Dr. Allen was a prolific speaker and the bulk of this collection is typewritten copies of speeches he
gave while in office. Many of the speeches, articles, and reports relate to ending de facto segregation
of schools and using bussing to integrate public schools, particularly in New York City. Ending
segregation was an important issue while he was commissioner of education in New York and this
carried over into his role as U.S. Commissioner of Education. Most of the materials in the collection
from that position relate to the Right to Read program Dr. Allen implemented before he left that
office. Committee reports and proposal papers make up the second largest component of the
collection and they appear in a sub-series related to the public office Dr. Allen held.
