Ed Gallagher Jr 1925-2015
We are very saddened to learn of the passing of Ed Gallagher Jr. From the Courier, just a glimpse of what Ed brought to life here in the Cedar Valley:
Gallagher, along with his wife, Cathy, who died in 2013, was an advocate for arts, culture and education in the Cedar Valley. The couple were key contributors, along with Carl and Peggy Bluedorn, to construction of the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center at the University of Northern Iowa. Their love of music and art fueled their support of organizations that advanced those passions in the Cedar Valley.
All of us at the symphony are forever grateful for Ed's many contributions to our community.
