The Frederic Lindley Morgan Chair of Architectural Design
The Department of Fine Arts has one of the very few visiting professorships in architectural history in the United States. The Morgan Chair of Architectural Design was endowed by Frederic Lindley Morgan (1889-1970), a Louisville architect who designed many churches, homes, and academic buildings in the Louisville area during his long career. Each year the department hosts a visiting professor of architectural design and history, who teaches a seminar open to both advanced undergraduate and graduate students.
Recent Morgan Professors have included Egyptologist Bob Brier of Long Island University, Greek specialist Robin
Rhodes from Notre Dame, and feminist architectural historian Alice Friedman from Wellesley College. The Morgan Endowment also sponsors a lecture series which focuses on issues related to all aspects of architectural design and history.
