19727 Allen           Discovered 1999 Dec. 4 by C. W. Juels at Fountain Hills.
London-based solar physicist Clabon Walter Allen (1904-1987) authored the first (1955) through third (1973) editions of Astrophysical Quantities, without which most professional astronomers would never have received their degrees, and most watchers of the sky would never have successfully completed their observing sessions.
