Additional Note: Sandy was born in Chicago. Thanks to Rita Rose for correcting my mistake. Risa is the author of the forthcoming, "World's Tallest Woman: The Giantess of Shelbyville High" (Hawthorne Publishing), due out in October. She and the publisher have established a Sandy Allen Fund scholarship" in her honor, and are asking for contributions.
