Aaron A. Gallup (1945-1992) was best known throughout his career as a photographer and lecturer on the subject of California architecture. Gallup grew up in Wilton, CA, near Elk Grove, and graduated from UC Berkeley in 1966. His post-collegiate employment took him to Idaho, as U.S. National Park Service Ranger at the Craters of the Moon, where he stayed for two years. He attended graduate school at the University of Oregon in Eugene in the early 1970s, but left to work as a freelance photographer, during which time he took photos in Carson City, NV for the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS). From 1972 to 1987 Gallup took on the role of staff architectural historian in charge of the National Register program at the State Office of Historic Preservation in the Department of Parks and Recreation. He followed this with a stint at the Office of Environmental Analysis for Caltrans with the same position from 1987 until his death on Nov. 11, 1992. Gallup's legacy includes numerous additions to the National Register through his photographs of historic sites and structures, as well as the sharing of his wealth of architectural knowledge in lectures and consultations at universities and businesses.
