Mayor of Shreveport, La., 1970-1978, and a major figure in transitioning the city from racial tension of the 1960s to progressive business capital of Northwest Louisiana in the 1980s. Retired from U.S. Navy Reserve as a captain with 32 years of service. World War II veteran. L. Calhoun Allen Jr. Exposition Hall in Shreveport is named for him. He was actually named Littleberry Calhoun Allen III but went by "Jr." as people did not remember his grandfather who first bore the name, and he named his son "III." He did not use his first name either, but preferred the initial.
