Mr. Gallett received a B.S. and M.S. degree in Engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology. Professor Gallett taught in the Engineering and Technology curriculum at Purdue University Calumet Campus for 33 years.

This included courses in the four-year Engineering program, and courses in the two and four-year Mechanical Engineering Technology programs, and also Industrial Training courses. Professor Gallett loved to build things. He designed and built his own home in St. John where he lived with his wife for 58 years until her death in 2006.
