This undated photograph shows Kenneth “Eagle” Wicks and Dr. James Gallup near a F-4C Phantom. He was a new flight surgeon and this was his first home station mission.

Dr Gallup practiced as an Anatomic & Clinical Pathology Specialist. He graduated from University of Rochester School of Medicine medical school in 1961. He was associated with the Honolulu Medical Group for many years, and later established a small private practice. When he retired, he had more that 50 years of experience.

True to his name, Jim Gallup was an accomplished marathon runner. He was known to run to Hickam AFB from his home in East Honolulu.
