An obituary in Thursday's editions of The Washington Post on Elizabeth Sutherland Allen gave the wrong year for her marriage to the late Bucky Harris, former manager of the Washington Senators baseball team. They were married in 1926. Mars Allen later married Louis Allen, a television weatherman, who died in 1976. The Washington Post regrets the error.
Elizabeth Sutherland Allen, 73, the daughter of a U.S. senator, the sister of a general and the mother of a judge on the D.C. Court of Appeals, died Tuesday at her home at Rossmoor Leisure World in Silver Spring following an apparent stroke.
Mrs. Allen was born in Elkins, W. Va. She came here when her father, Howard Sutherland, was elected to Congress, where he served first in the House of Representatives and then in the Senate. She graduated from Madeira School in McLean and later studied music in New York.
In 1936, she married Bucky Harris, the "boy wonder" manager of the old Washington Senators baseball team. The marriage ended in divorce in 1951. Mr. Harris died last year.
In 1961, she married Louis Allen, a well known television weather forecaster in the Washington area. The marriage ended in divorce in 1969. Mr. Allen died in 1976.
For many years Mrs. Allen was a volunteer for the American Red Cross. In 1956, she helped process refugees from Hungary following the anti-Soviet uprising in that country.
Her brother, Lt. Gen. Richard K. Sutherland, was chief of staff for Gen. Douglas MacArthur during World War II. Gen. Sutherland died in 1966.
Mrs. Allen's survivors include two sons, Judge Stanley S. Harris of the D.C. Court of Appeals, of Bethesda, and Richard S. Harris, of Springfield, Va.; a daughter, Sally H. Gooch, of Orlando, Fla.; a sister, Mrs. Wallis Dunckel, of Easton, Conn., and nine grandchildren.
