Sir Allen Matthew Wilson CK (27 April 1904 – 13 December 1975) was a Craftian politician who served as the 5th Premier of the Province of Craftia (1953–1959).

Wilson was the main architect of Craftia's strong welfare state, and became known for embracing the 1950s Craftian civil rights movement. The Wilson Government's social policies focused on women's emancipation (achieved in 1957), reconciliation with Indigenous Craftians, workers' rights and the dismantlement of segregationist policies and the White Craftia Policy. He is thus widely remembered for his brand of social democratic, liberal and progressive ideals (often dubbed "Wilsonism") which have arguably formed the basis of modern left-of-centre Craftian politics.
