Established in 1977 through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth F. Montgomery (Dartmouth Class of 1925), the Kenneth and Harle Montgomery Endowment was created "to provide for the advancement of the academic realm of the College in ways that will significantly add to the quality and character thereof, making possible major new dimensions for, as well as extraordinary enrichments to, the educational experience offered primarily to undergraduate students within the Dartmouth community."
In extending and enriching the opportunities available at the College, complementary to the regular, curricular offerings of the institution, the Endowment has as its major program-objective the bringing to Dartmouth of outstanding figures not only from the academic world, but from non-academic spheres as well: persons "capable of achieving an important and broadscale impact educationally."
Designated "Montgomery Fellows," these distinguished persons are in Hanover for varying lengths of time, ranging up to one full year; and during their incumbencies they make their headquarters at Montgomery House, a comfortable and gracious residence adjacent to the campus.
Fellows' responsibilities and activities may involve formal teaching, presenting lectures, variously meeting with students and faculty, or combinations of such engagements.
