Richard Hinckley Allen (19 Jun 1846 - 14 Jan 1908)

American teacher, minister, and amateur astronomer. Allen wrote the influential work, Star Names. Their Lore and Meaning. This book was very important in its time but research over the past 100+ years has outdated it in many aspects. Readers are cautioned against using Star Names as their primary source for constellation history (Fuchs 2007).

Richard Hinckley Allen was born in 1838 near Buffalo, New York, USA. . As a youth Allen sought knowledge of all kinds and his classmates called him a walking encyclopedia (Lynn 1908).
