Former president (1945-1968) and chief executive officer (1968-1972) of the Boeing Co. Allen led Boeing's post-World War II re-entry into the commercial market. Perhaps his greatest coup was staking $16 million on the construction of a swept-wing commercial jet prototype, which evolved into the Boeing 707.
