On January 3, 2015, David Field formally executed a modification to the professorship agreement, which now reads: 

"To honor the memory of my daughter Marion Field-McKenna, it is my wish that the name of the Mary Rogers Field Distinguished University Professorship be modified to include Marion’s name. Marion was a 2008 graduate of DePauw. Accordingly, the fund shall now be known as the Mary Rogers Field and Marion Field-McKenna Distinguished University Professorship for Creative Writing."
