Gallagher was born in Adelaide, Australia. In the First World War he saw service with the South African Forces in German South-West Africa (now Namibia) and with the ROYAL ENGINEERS in France and Flanders for which he was awarded the Military Cross. He qualified as an architect in 1919. He trained as a quantity surveyor and worked in Natal in 1921. From 1922 until about 1926/1927 he was in partnership with C SMALL (cf SMALL & GALLAGHER) in Johannesburg, during which time Small designed House Gallagher. In 1927 he became a member of the Institute of South African Architects, resigning from it shortly afterwards. In 1934 04 14 he married Dorothy May Dickinson by whom he had a son and a daughter. He applied for re-admission but the Institute decided he did not qualify for this since he was engaged in business as director of companies (see SAWW 1958). In 1959 he is recorded as a salaried member of the Transvaal Institute, in the employ of F Sage and Co (SA) (Pty) Ltd, hence some relationship with the ISAA was retained. He retired in 1963. He died in Johannesburg.
