Memorable Manitobans: James Joseph Ross “Jim” Gallo (1951-2003)

Civil servant.

Born at Winnipeg on 24 August 1951, he spent most of his professional career in the study of First Nation history; first, with the Manitoba Indian Brotherhood and the Treaty and Aboriginal Rights Research Centre and later, as a Manager with the regional office of the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs. He assisted in the development of settlement agreements of the Treaty land entitlements in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, as well as in other First Nation land claim settlements. In 2002, he received the Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal in recognition of his community service. He died on 14 October 2003.
