Biographical history

Frank Allen was born in Meductic, New Brunswick in 1874. He received a Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1902 and joined the University of Manitoba as Professor of Physics in 1904. He was one of the original six professors at the University of Manitoba. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of Canada in 1909. Allen was awarded an L.L.D. from the University of Manitoba in 1924 and from the University of New Brunswick in 1944. In 1944 he retired as Professor Emeritus from the University of Manitoba. During his esteemed career, he published sixty articles and two critically acclaimed books.

Custodial history

The academic papers of Professor Frank Allen came into the possession of University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 1979 through the efforts of his daughter Professor Lillian Allen. MSS SC 184 was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 1990 by Audrey Kerr of the University's Medical Library.

Scope and content

The fonds consists primarily of a draft of his then unpublished treatise, Responses of the Organism to Stimulation. There are also reprints of Allen's articles and lecture notes. MSS SC 184 consists of letters from Dr. Allen to Dr. Ross Mitchell, as well as the letters' enclosures.
