Editor's Note: It is curious Allen went first to Dunkirk where he most likely had no ties or network of friends to get him started because like the snap of a rubber band he is right back in his comfort zone albeit the edge of it.  Whoever Irving Luce is, Allen did not hesitate to head for his door.  I can't find Irving in the Census.
