Biographical/Historical Information

Virginia elects its governors to four-year terms without the option of a second consecutive term. At the end of each four-year term, the exiting governor by way of the Transition Office, gathers material to present to the governor-elect. The information is presented in binders and contains reports, memoranda, correspondence, budget documents, and other briefing material. The binders also provide information on specific secretariats and agencies. The Transition Office briefing records are compiled in order to prepare the governor-elect to take office.

George Felix Allen was born March 8, 1952 in Whittier, California to famed NFL football coach George H. Allen and his wife Henrietta (Lumbroso) Allen. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1971 and the University of Virginia School of Law in 1977. Allen served in the Virginia House of Delegates from 1982-1991 and served a short term in the U.S. House of Delegates in the early 1990s. In November 1993, Allen beat Attorney General Mary Sue Terry to become Governor. Governor Allen served until January 1998 and was succeeded by Governor James S. Gilmore. Governor Allen has been married to Susan (Brown) Allen since 1986 and they have three children, Forrest, Tyler, and Brooke. The family resides in Mount Vernon, Virginia.
