President Harry Allen

It was during Harry Allen’s term of office in 1951-52 that the original “bug” was planted in Las Vegas.  It all happened because of the demotion party that was planned for him.  Allye Lawson, in order to get script material for Allen’s party, installed a recording device in his automobile in order to tape conversations in the car.  Allen was not aware of the “bug”, and Lawson and his cohorts got more than enough information for the party.
