Short biography
The son of Vineyard Gazette reporter and columnist Joseph Chase Allen, Everett S. Allen was born in New Bedford but lived on Martha's Vineyard from age 8 until his graduation from high school. He returned to New Bedford after college and was hired as a waterfront reporter for the New Bedford Standard Times on September 20, 1938, the day before the most powerful hurricane in the recorded history of New England struck the city. His coverage of the storm damage made his reputation, and (except for service in the US Navy during World War II) he remained at the Standard Times as a reporter and columnist until his retirement in 1979, refusing a promotion to associate editor because he preferred to write.
