Death of Allen Martin (PPE, 1960)

17 July 2019

Allen Martin, age 81, has died peacefully surrounded by his family. A memorial service and celebration of his life will be held in the USA at the North Congregational Church in St Johnsbury, Vt, on 21 July at 2.30pm, with a private burial at a later date. 

He graduated from Oxford in 1962 with a first-class degree in philosophy, politics and economics and went on to Harvard Law School, earning an LLB cum laude in 1965, before  enjoying a highly successful career in the law.
 
While at Oxford, Allen played on the Oxford University lacrosse team that beat Cambridge 8-4 in 1961. 
 
Instead of flowers, his family have asked that anyone so inclined can contribute to the Martin-Wilson Fellowship Fund at Williams College, in support of Williams students attending Worcester College. Read more
