Karl Rogers Allen Jr. (born April 24, 1931) was the former Deputy Commander of the American Nazi Party headed by George Lincoln Rockwell. Allen broke with Rockwell and fromed the White Party of America in April 1964.

Karl Allen is a native of Tallahassee, Florida and a graduate of Florida State University obtaining a political science degree in 1956. He earned his B.A. at the Harvard School of Business in 1958.[1] His studies at Florida State were interrupted by the Korean War where he served as a First Lieutenant.

Karl Allen joined the ANP in August 1961 and left the party in December 8, 1963. He was the first person arrested when Rockwell led a counter-demonstration at the Washington Monument of seventy people against Martin Luther King’s 1963 March on Washington. Allen insisted upon giving a speech after repeated warnings from authorities that he would be arrested for speaking without a permit.[2]

Karl Allen believed Rockwell’s convicted assassin John Patler was framed by the ADL and started a John Patler Defense Fund on his behalf.

Allen later became affiliated with the White Citizens Council. In 1967 he participated in the presidential campaign of Governor George Wallace turning the White Party of America offices into the first Wallace headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia.
