My name is Tom Gally, and I am a teacher, lexicographer, and former translator living in Yokohama, Japan.

I contributed to Wikipedia from September 2004 until around 2007, and I hope to find time to start contributing again. Some articles I started are the following:

Thomas Blount, Catalina Island Conservancy (stub), Ian Frazier, Donald Grant Mitchell, Joseph Mitchell, Nagai Kafu, Otsuki Fumihiko, Polyglot (book), Portative organ, Positive organ, Regal, Roger Twysden, Shincho (stub), Silent letter, Calvin Trillin, Yu Miri

And here are some images I contributed:

Chinese restaurant in Katsushika-ku, Tokyo, in the articles Chinese cuisine and Japanese Chinese cuisine
Frets on a guitar neck in the article Fret
Summertime beach in Avalon, California

Some non-Wiki things I have created are at Gally.Net. My professional site is here.

Chemistry articles[edit]

In 2004 and 2005, when Wikipedia was still young, I supervised first-year doctoral students in chemistry at the University of Tokyo with the preparation of Wikipedia articles in their areas of expertise. Among the articles that the students created or expanded are:
