Edgar Van Nuys Allen

Edgar Van Nuys Allen (June 22, 1900 – June 14 1961) was an American physician who was a native of Cozad, Nebraska. He is remembered for his work done as a professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Edgar Allen was a specialist in cardiovascular medicine, and particularly known for his research of peripheral vascular disease. His name is lent to the eponymous Allen test, which is a procedure to determine blood supply to the hand. He also did extensive research and development of dicumerol, an anti-coagulant that is produced from coumarin.
