Appropriately, the award was given to Gallaway during a meeting of the Galveston County Historical Commission, the very group Mary Faye Barnes had chaired for twenty years. TOHA recognized Gallaway for her outstanding work on a project titled "History of the Scientific Management of Shrimp in the Galveston Bay Area," an oral history project of the Environmental Institute of Houston at the University of Houston-Clear Lake.
