David Allan (ENACT Co-Chair)
David Allan was a Ph.D. student in the Department of Zoology in the fall of 1969 when he started ENACT as a co-chair. Upon assuming his role as co-chair, Allan took the academic year off to focus solely on the Teach-In. Before attending the University of Michigan, he had finished his undergraduate degree in 1966 at the University of British Columbia. Allan organized the majority of the Teach-In and acted as a figurehead for ENACT. After the U-M Teach-In, he finished his Ph.D. program at the University of Michigan and completed his post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Chicago. Allan later worked for the University of Maryland until 1988 when he returned to the University of Michigan until 2010.
