Montgomery memorial set for June 20

A memorial gathering for Edison Montgomery is scheduled for 4-6 p.m. June 20  in the University Club Gold Room.

Montgomery, who died April 1, 2011, served the University under six chancellors beginning in 1956. (See obituary in the April 14 University Times.)

The family suggests memorial donations to the Edison Montgomery Phi Beta Kappa Junior Prize. Checks should be made out to the University of Pittsburgh referencing the Montgomery prize and sent to the University Honors College, 3600 Cathedral of Learning, Pittsburgh 15260.

The Montgomery prize is given annually to the member of the junior class judged to be best at fulfilling Phi Beta Kappa’s ideals of intellectual scope and academic attainment. Montgomery was executive committee secretary of the Pittsburgh chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, 1985-2000. Pitt’s Xi chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa Society named the award for him in 2003.
