Named Professorships

Rev. Howard J. Kenna, C.S.C., Memorial Assistant Professor of Mathematics

The four Kenna Professorships were created by the University to memorialize Father Howard Kenna (’26), a Fellow and Trustee of Notre Dame. In 1955, he was appointed president of the University of Portland, a position he held until becoming the provincial superior of the Indiana Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1962.
