Mr. Allen died at the Clara Barton Hospital at [illegible] a.m. yesterday following a nervous breakdown and kidney complications.

He was born in Indianapolis, Ind., in 1887 (sic), and came to Los Angeles at an early age. His marriage to Miss Harlan Struance a year and a half ago was one of the brilliant society events of the season.
