Memorable Manitobans: Herbert Peter Howell Galloway (1866-1939)


Born at Hawkesville, Ontario on 20 July 1866, son of William Galloway and Mary S. Howell, he was educated at the Toronto School of Medicine, receiving in 1887 an MD degree from Victoria University. He commenced a medical practice at Toronto later that year. He came to Winnipeg in 1905, opened a medical clinic at 661 Broadway, and served as orthopedic surgeon at the Winnipeg General Hospital and lecturer in orthopedic surgery at the Manitoba Medical College. He served as President of Manitoba Medical Association (1911-1912).

On 29 August 1889, he married Charlotte Elsie Sanderson of Toronto, Ontario. They had two daughters: Gladys Muriel Galloway (wife of J. H. Wright) and Ivadele Frances Galloway (wife of J. S. MacPherson). The family lived at 222 Queenston Street. He was a member of the American Orthopedic Association, the Winnipeg Medico-Chirurgical Society, the Canadian Club, and Broadway Methodist Church.

He died at Winnipeg on 13 July 1939 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
