Allen Dobson was a Nashville banker, businessman and Philanthropist. He was the founder of Youth Incorporated which was chartered in June 1945 under the laws of the State of Tennessee. He was also the inspiration for another youth organization in 1950 called "Hands Across the Sea".

Mr. Dobson cared so much about children that when the original camp was displaced due to the airport expansion program he opened his summer home known as Ridley Landing to the organization.
