“That’s What We Do”: Keeping the F&F Industry Linked
The Allured family has been in the publishing business since 1921, when Earl R. Allured debuted a confectionery industry magazine from his offices in the Chicago Stock Exchange building. In 1949, Earl’s son, Stanley E. Allured, joined the business. It was Stanley who, following the family’s acquisition of the publication in 1960, assumed the management of Perfumer & Flavorist magazine precursor The American Perfumer. Throughout the years, Allured Publishing has been operated by various members of the family, including Stanley’s wife, Betty Lou; their three daughters—Nancy, Jean and Janet; and several grandchildren, including Jeb Gleason-Allured, Perfumer & Flavorist magazine's current editor.
