18271890 ca
a British anthropologist and writer. He opposed women's right to vote, arguing that universal suffrage would cause the disruption of domestic ties, the desecration of marriage and the dissolution of the family. He attributed the agitation for equal rights to the problem of the 'superfluous women', on account of emigration and the growing objection of middle and upper-class men to marriage. He was member of the Anthropological Society of London. His younger brother was the poet Peter John Allan.
