Dorothy Armstrong Allen, a native of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, graduated from Earlham College in 1945 with a BA in mathematics and piano. While she raised her five children, Dorothy became active in several local organizations, including the South Bend YMCA, St. Joseph County Scholarship Foundation, the South Bend Symphony Women's Association and the Junior League of South Bend.

In 1963, Dorothy was one of the first women to receive a master of arts in mathematics education from the University of Notre Dame. In 1968 Dorothy took a position at IU South Bend in the mathematics department, which she held until December 2000.

Next to her family, Dorothy's greatest love was international travel. During her lifetime, she visited nearly every country in the world. As part of her teaching career with IU South Bend, Dorothy lived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for two years. She also traveled to Saudi Arabia in 1979 for the Indiana University ARAMCO project.

In honoring Dorothy's life, the Dorothy Allen Memorial Mathematics Scholarship was established to provide current international undergraduate and graduate students majoring in Department of Mathematical Sciences at IU South Bend with financial assistance in completing their degrees.

Those who wish to make contributions in Dorothy's memory may contribute to the Dorothy Allen Memorial Mathematics Scholarship through the IUSB Mathematical Sciences Department. Checks should be made to the Indiana University Foundation. The address for scholarship donations: Department of Mathematical Sciences, Indiana University South Bend, P.O. Box 7111, South Bend, IN 46634-7111. You may get a donation form online at math-sci/donations.
