FARRELL THOMAS GALLAGHER, A. B., M. D., is one of the able and representative physicians and surgeons of the
younger generation of his native county, and is established in successful general practice at Lakewood, with office
headquarters at 16409 Detroit Avenue.
Doctor Gallagher was born in the family home on the West Side of Cleveland, January 9, 1895, he being a representative
of an old and well known Cleveland family. His grandfather, Farrell Gallagher, was born and reared in Ireland and
became one of the early settlers on Seneca Street, in the Lighthouse Hill district of Cleveland. He was actively
identified with the interests of this section of Cleveland for many years, and was one of the venerable and honored
citizens of the Ohio metropolis at the time of his death. He married Mary Gallagher, who, though of the same name,
was of no relationship.
Thomas M. Gallagher, father of the doctor, was born in the old family homestead on Lighthouse Hill, in 1856, and
he has maintained his home in Cleveland, where he has been associated with the United States mail service for the
past thirty seven years. He married Miss Anna Feighan, who was born in Ireland, a daughter of William Feighan,
and both are members of the Catholic Church.
Doctor Gallagher completed the curriculum of the public schools and in 1915 was graduated from Saint Ignatius College
at Cleveland with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. He then entered the medical department of Western Reserve University,
and in this institution he was graduated as a member of the class of 1919. After receiving his degree of Doctor
of Medicine he further fortified himself by his service as an interne in Lakeside Hospital in 1919-20, and in Charity
Hospital, 1920. He has since been established in the independent and general practice of his profession at Lakewood,
and his personal popularity has combined with his professional ability to gain him a substantial and representative
practice. He is doing effective work in the educational department of his profession, being demonstrator in anatomy
at his alma mater, the Medical School of Western Reserve University. He is a member of the Cleveland Academy of
Medicine, the Ohio State Medical Society, and the American Medical Association. The Doctor is a communicant of
the Catholic Church, and has received the Alhambra degree in Gilmore Council of the Knights of Columbus, besides
