Biography of Daniel V. Gallery

Daniel Vincent Gallery was born in Chicago, Illinois, on July 10, 1901, entered the Naval Academy in 1917, and graduated with the class of 1921 on June 3, 1920. He advanced through the ranks until 1960, when he retired from the Navy with the rank of Rear Admiral.

As a midshipman, Gallery was a member of the United States Olympic wrestling team and participated in the Olympic Games of 1920 in Antwerp, Belgium. In 1927 he was ordered to Pensacola for flight training. He was in command of the U.S. Navy Fleet Air Base in Iceland when World War II broke out. In 1943, Gallery took command of the U.S.S. Guadalcanal. In June 1944, Gallery captured the German submarine U-505 off Cape Blanco, French West Africa, the first boarding and capture at sea of an enemy naval vessel since 1815.

In 1928, Gallery married Vera Lee Dunn. They subsequently adopted three children, James J., Daniel V. III, and Beatrice Constance.

In 1945, he assumed command of the U.S.S. Hancock, and when the formal surrender of the Japanese imperial government was signed on board the Missouri, Hancock's planes flew overhead.

Gallery later served as Assistant Chief of Naval Operations (guided missiles), commanded Carrier Division Six during the Korean conflict, commanded the Naval Air Reserve Training Command at Glenview, and served as commandant of the 10th Naval District, with headquarters at San Juan, Puerto Rico. While in San Juan, Gallery set up the first Navy steel band.

During his career, Gallery accumulated over 6,000 hours flying time in all types of naval aircraft, including single-seat jets. He was a prolific writer of books, articles, and short stories, and a skilled cartoonist. Among the works authored by Gallery are Twenty Million Tons Under the Sea (1956), Eight Bells and All's Well and Now, Hear This (1965), Stand By-y-y to Start Engines (1966), The Brink (1968), Cap'n Fatso (1969), and The Pueblo Incident (1970).

Admiral Daniel V. Gallery died on January 16, 1977 at the Bethesda Naval Hospital.
