Richard Merett Montague (19301971) was an American mathematician and philosopher. His research focused on the foundations of logic and set theory, and pioneered a logical approach to natural language semantics which became known as Montague grammar.

He earned his Ph.D. in 1957 from University of California, Berkeley under the direction of Alfred Tarski, with a dissertation on Contributions to the Axiomatic Foundations of Set Theory. He was a faculty member at UCLA at the time of his violent and mysterious death.
