William James said, "The great use of a life is to spend it for something that outlasts it." Tom Galloway's medical papers will continue to influence future generations. Most of you are as familiar as I am with Dr. Galloway's many important contributions to the otolaryngologic literature. It was the knowledge of these contributions that prompted your Executive Committee to select Dr. Galloway as the Honorary Chairman of our Section for 1955. Because I wanted to know more about Galloway the man, I wrote to Dr. Soper, one of his associates, for information. The following sentences are quotations from Dr. Soper's letter:
Dr. Galloway is one of the old school who has taken his work very seriously. One of his most out-standing characteristics has been his never-give-up attitude even in the most desperate cases.
He has done a great deal to educate the profession to the need of early tracheotomy
