About George H. Allen

From Representative deaf persons of the United States of America by James Ernst Gallagher Mr. Allen became deaf at the age of six years; entered school at Faribault, Minn., November 25, 1873, and remained eight years, graduating with the class of 1881. Entered Gallaudet college September, 1881, and passed all examinations, but remained only a short time on account of poor health. Returning to Minnesota he undertook various work, from farming to tailoring, pursuing the latter occupation for a number of years. Finally he abandoned this to engage in newspaper work, which he had fancied from early childhood, and has since startled the world and pleased his friends by showing how easy it was for him to leave his tailor's goose and engage successfully in editorial work on a big daily newspaper. He began as printer's "devil" and editorial writer combined on a country newspaper in South Dakota, and two years ago entered his present position as editorial writer on the Sioux City Daily Tribune. Mr. Allen was united in marriage to Miss May Sumbardo at Marshalltown, Ia., September 2, 1890. Two bright boys bless the union. Mrs. Allen can hear. Mr. Allen was born at Chatfield, Minn., May 4, 1865.
