From Provenance Catalogue: A prominent figure in the early annals of King's College, Galloway was rector by 1516 and three times thereafter. He strove to maintain the university ideal and as rector ordered the visitation of 1549, after which 51 alterations were recommended. He lectured on civil law and was very generous to the chapel, as he was to the church at Kinkell, where he became prebend in 1521, and later rector. He was also in residence as canon of St Machar's from 1545 to his death in 1552. He was chief architect to both Bishop Elphinstone and Bishop Dunbar, building Greyfriars and Leper's Chapel, Aberdeen, and adding to the church at Kinkell. A man of many talents, he was as sound in business as he was enthusiastic in scientific studies. With Hector Boece he discovered barnacle geese in the Hebrides.
