Named Professorships

Francesco Montana Professor of Architecture

In 2015, Carroll William Westfall, who held the Montana Professorship for 17 years, became the Montana Professor Emeritus. A search is underway to find the next Francesco Montana Professor of Architecture.

The Montana Professorship was endowed by Notre Dame Trustee and parent Fritz L. Duda. He and his wife, Mary Lee, have established professorships in each of Notre Dame’s colleges and schools. This position honors the late architecture professor Francesco “Frank” Montana, who designed the Ecumenical Institute in Tantur, the Notre Dame Center in Jerusalem, and campus landmarks including McKenna Hall.
