The Darrold and Kay Cannan Term Professorship, established in 2007 by Darrold A. Cannan, Jr. ’53 and his wife, Kay, is a permanently endowed fund at W&L providing support for a faculty member in the Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics. The award recognizes a different professor every three years.
