Robert C. Hall Dr. Edgar Galloway Confederate Acting Director Is Revealed By Margaret Martin Of The Times Staff Robert C. Hall, assistant ad-ministrator at Confederate Me-morial Medical Center, has been named acting director of the institution, effective today at 8 a.m., according to Harold K. Quinn, chairman of the hospital board of directors. He replaces Dr. Edgar Gallo-way, who has worked as direc-tor of the hospital on three different occasions since 1940 for a little better than 22 years. Quinn also announced that a doctor will be named associate medical coordinator to work on a part-time basis will be named at a later date. The physician has not been selected yet, ''but it will be someone on the staff or the visiting staff." Although the board accepted Galloway s resignation Aug. 25, yesterday's announcement came as a surprise, since Galloway had agreed to stay on until a new director was hired. Quinn said the Selection Com-mittee, headed by Anna Laura Wilder of Homer had made H a l l ' s appointment "at Dr. Galloway's insistence." Gallo-way had no comment on the move. Being Interviewed Hall, who has been associated with the hospital since 1961, is among those being interviewed for director. Many applicants are being considered for the post, though, Quinn emphasized. (Up until a recent board meet-ing, only a doctor could be administrator at the hospital. The board voted to change the bylaws, paving the way for a trained hospital administrator who is a layman.) There is widespread interest in the Confederate post because the facility is the teaching hospital for the LSU School of Medicine at Shreveport. Hall received his B.S. degree from Louisiana State University and has completed work toward a master's degree in accounting from LSU. He is a member of the Shreveport and Louisiana chap-ters of Certified Public Accoun-tants; the American Institute of CPAs and is a nominee of the American College of Hospital Administrators. He is clinical professor of medical administration for the LSU Medical School at Shreve-port. As assistant administrator he handled many business and fi-nancia operations of the hospi-pital and represented Galloway' from time to time. He appeared before many governmental bodies on behalf of Confederate, including the Legislative Budget Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, the Department of Public Wel- ; fare and the Division of Admin-istration.
