Montgomery, first University of North Dakota faculty member appointed, was named vice president and natural sciences chair (1884-1886) and served as curator of the museum (1888-1889). Besides teaching the natural sciences, he also taught English and along with Webster Merrifield helped to develop the liberal arts curriculum for the university. When President William Blackburn was dismissed in 1885 and Webster Merrifield declined the presidency, Montgomery became acting president for two years (1885-1887). He resigned from the University of North Dakota in 1889.
