A number of prominent agribusiness economists and industry leaders have commended his work:

Tim Hammonds, President and CEO of the Food Marketing Institute says: "It was a pleasure to work with Dr. Gallo for almost three decades during his long and distinguished tenure at the Economic Research Service, US Department of Agriculture.  America's farmers and America's consumers were the direct beneficiaries of his work. We were very fortunate to have him here in Washington."  

   Brian Todd, President of the Food Institute recalls that: "Whenever I needed information regarding the retail food industry, Tony Gallo was always the person I could depend on to give me the answers."

   Dr. Ray A. Goldberg, Professor of Agribusiness at the Harvard Business School noted in 2003: "His leadership role in providing an on going analysis of the changing structure of the value added food system of our country was invaluable to research leaders, private and public decision makers, and farm leaders in developing private and public strategies that were beneficial to the performance of their firm's or institutions in responding to consumers food and nutrition needs in a manner that was consistent with the political, social, and economic priorities of our country. No other nation has had such an excellent on going structural analysis as you produced."

Dr. Benjamin Senauer, CO-Director of The Retail Food Industry Center and Distinguished Professor of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota, defines him as "one of the foremost experts on the US food marketing system."

ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE FUTURE

Anthony E. Gallo Commodity Economics Division Economic Research Service U.S. Department of Agriculture 1301 New York Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20005-4788

Dear Tony:

I was elated to secure your participation in this landmark undertaking that draws together nearly 500 commentaries concerning the important problems confronting society. Articles written for the Encyclopedia of the Future by persons of your standing will make this reference worthy.

Intellectual contributors to the content of contemporary affairs often underestimate the influence of their ideas upon final outcomes.  Like a rock cast into a pond, its hard to discern exactly where the ripples spread, what else they influence, or when they end.  Your insights and perspectives will reach many others and influence understanding for years to come.

A number of your publications, most notably my complete collection of Food Marketing Review, occupy a prominent place on my library shelves.  I frequently refer to them and have been deeply influenced by your writings.  Your extraordinary ability to capture the warp and waft of historic trends, and to project further developments into the future is one I strive to emulate.

In closing, I want to reiterate what a pleasure it has been for me to have known you over the years, and to collaborate with you in this effort.  I personally revere our acquaintanceship.  I hope our paths have many opportunities to cross in the years ahead.

•g-^P~-SS-t^.




Sincerely Yours,

Graham T. T. Molitor Editorial Board Chairman

P.S. The logic, thematic treatment, conciseness, clarity, and writing style of your essay was superb.  Among articles edited so far, only three or four others are done as well. If all submissions were as good as yours, my job would be a great deal easier — and prospective readers, I feel certain, would be a good deal more thankful!

Graham T.T. Molitor

INFORMATIONAL MEMORANDUM




TO:       Tony Gallo

FROM:     John E. Lee, Jr. Administrator

SUBJECT:   Food Marketing Review

Tony, you and your contributing authors are to be congratulated on one of the most informative, interesting, and useful publications put out by this Agency I spent a good part of this past weekend going over virtually every page in the report and getting so excited by it that I wished I had an opportunity to brief the Secretary on the interesting material in it.  Clearly, the food industry is undergoing momentous change.  Not enough attention is being paid to that change in USDA.  My hope is that this report will help to change that situation.  I intend to use it to build support for an initiative to expand our staffing and research in the food marketing area.  In the meantime, let me express my appreciation to you and your colleagues for a job well done and for making a real contribution to the visibility and impact of ERS.
