For a half dozen years, Judson “Jud” Galloway along with with his brother Steve were an integral part of professional basketball in Newburgh, New York. Beginning in 1909, they were in charge of the Newburgh entry in the Hudson River League. After a disastrous first season in which Newburgh won only two of twenty-eight  games, they worked hard to improve the team. In the second season,  Newburgh posted a 16-23 record. By the the 1915-16 season they had the team in  first place when the league expired in late January of 1912. Jud was one of Newburgh’ most popular residents. He was a successful  businessman and accomplished athlete in multiple sports. The city mourned when Galloway was killed in action during World War I in France in June of 1918.
