Allan Fitzroy Rae (30 September 1922 – 27 February 2005) was a West Indian cricketer who played 15 Tests for the West Indies. As a player, he was a specialist batsman, who made just over 1,000 Test runs in his five-year career — including four centuries. His Test batting average of 46.18 was considerably higher than his first class average of 39.65, despite his 17 centuries at first class level and a highest score of 179. He later became president of the West Indies Cricket Board from 1981 to 1988. His father, Ernest Rae, toured England with the West Indies team in 1928.[1]

In June 1988 Rae was celebrated on the $4 Jamaican stamp alongside the Barbados Cricket Buckle.
