On June 11th, 2016 the Portrait of My Uncle, Joseph P. Allen IV was gifted to DePauw University and will hang in a hall of the beautiful Julian Science and Mathematics center. The official unveiling was followed by a presentation of Joe Allen’s travels into space aboard the space shuttle Challenger and Discovery in 1982 and 1984 respectively.
My sincere thanks to all who attended, including President-Elect Dr. McCoy, and a very special thank you to my Maestro, Prof. Robert Kingsley, and the man behind the curtain, my Dad, Dr. David T. Allen. Thank you also to DePauw’s Nancy Lovett for her impeccable hospitality and her ‘major gift’ to Grace Caroline.
The first gallery below are pictures taken by DePauw photographer Linda Striggo. The second gallery includes pictures from the unveiling, from the informal presentation given the day before, and, the Allen Family in Putnam County given at the Putnam County Museum the day before that.
