William M. Allen



William M. Allen

Bill Allen’s 50 years at Boeing really included two careers with the company. The first started in the mid-1920s, when Allen worked as outside legal counsel to help Boeing establish its new air-transport network and negotiate airport leases in states over which its mail and passenger routes were flown. Allen’s business involvement with Boeing expanded during the next 20 years, both in a legal capacity and as a company director and valued advisor. In 1945, the “right time” came, and Allen’s second Boeing career began, with his appointment to the company’s presidency.

See some of his personal memorabilia just outside the theater that honors him.
