William Hales Hingston, S.J.


Jesuits at Loyola


William H. Hingston, S.J., Rector July 1, 1918 - July 31,1925
William H. Hingston, S.J., tackled Loyola’s biggest problem: its annual debt. He began to re-organize Loyola’s finances by organizing a fund-raising drive. By the time he left the Rector’s office in 1925 he had raised enough money for Loyola to pay off debts and strengthen the general finances of the institution but also to add two storeys in 1921 to the Administration Building and by 1927 attach an impressive central tower to it. The Loyola Stadium, under construction since 1922 was formally opened on January 19, 1924.
