James B. Allan became the Ritchie Community League's first President in 1922. Allan was an architect and Scottish immigrant who came to Canada in 1906. He lived across the street from the modern Ritchie Community Hall at 9760 78th Avenue and was an avid lawn bowler. Allan served only a short term as league President, as he and his family moved away from the city in 1923. The office of league president was transferred to D. Connell in early 1923 in preparation for Allan's departure.
