Photograph of Montgomery Hall about 1928. On the back it says "Road looking north between commons on left and Science Hall on right - shows south view of commons. Campus view taken about 1928." Note the old fashioned lamp posts next to the sidewalk and the road is not yet paved.

Montgomery Hall was built in 1911 in the Tudor Revival architectural style, under the administration of President Frank McVey (1909-1917). By 1929, the building was utilized as a library, as the Carnegie Library had outgrown its space. After construction of the Chester Fritz Library in 1961, Montgomery was used for various administrative purposes. As of 2019, plans are to demolish the building and construct a new College of Business and Public Administration on the location.
