Patricia K Galloway
Galloway worked as a medieval archaeologist in Europe in the 1970s and then became involved with humanities-oriented computing, which she supported in the Computer Unit of Westfield College of the University of London. From 1979 to 2000 she worked at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, where she was a documentary editor, archaeological editor, historian, museum exhibit developer, and electronic records program director, while at the same time creating the MDAH's automation program from scratch as manager of information systems. She is the author most recently of Choctaw Genesis 1500-1700 (1995) and editor of The Hernando de Soto Expedition (1997). From 1997 to 2000 she directed the NHPRC grant-funded project at MDAH to create an electronic records program for the state of Mississippi, working in collaboration with staff of the Mississippi Department of Health in the proof of concept schedules and records acquisition steps taken by the project.
