Ernest G. Moll Faculty Research Professorship in Literary Studies
The Ernest G. Moll Faculty Research Professorship in Literary Studies was established in 2003 with a generous gift from English Department alumna Maribeth W. Collins (BA 1940). Ms. Collins was a student of Ernest Gerry Moll, a UO English professor/poet who taught in the English Department from 1928 to1966. Moll played a significant role in the development of Collins' life-long interest in poetry, and the two struck up a meaningful correspondence toward the end of his life. Ms. Collins established this fellowship to honor the memory of her favorite professor.
The Moll Professorship is awarded each year to the OHC Faculty Research Fellowship applicant with the most outstanding proposal in the field of literary studies. The Moll Professor is given a term free of teaching to engage in full-time research, as well as a $1,000 research account to be used during the fellowship year.
The Ernest G. Moll Professor in Literary Studies is selected each year by the OHC fellowship review committee, on the basis of the applicant's regular OHC Research Fellowship proposal. No additional application materials are required.
