Biography

Scott ALLEN

After the terrible plane crash of 1961 the United States had slim expectations for the 1964 Innsbruck Olympics. But they did not count on a young man with the wonderfully patriotic name of Scott Ethan Allen. He burst on the scene in 1964 by winning the U.S. National Championships and qualifying for the Olympic team. At Innsbruck he was always in the medal chase and pulled it off with a fine free skating performance. Big things were expected in the next few years, but Allen, though extremely charismatic and loved by the fans, never really improved. He finished second in the 1965 U.S. championships but won the title again in 1966. His only World Championship medal was a silver in 1964. He never won a world championship and in 1968 failed in a second effort to make the U.S. Olympic team. Allen graduated from Harvard in 1971 and later from Columbia Business School. He worked for over 30 years for his stepfather’s clothing business, Corbin Ltd., eventually becoming vice-president of research and development. Allen was a distant descendant of the US Revolutionary War hero, Ethan Allen.
