The Cameras Come Calling
In 2008, the Washington Postprofiled Allen, bringing his incredible story of life inside the White House to the mainstream. Despite being offered to appear on many national TV outlets and give countless interviews, Allen declined and continued his quiet life post-White House. He last lived in a "simple house off Georgia Avenue NW" in Washington, according to the Post. (Photo: CBS /Landov)
