ⓘ Thomas I. Gasson

Thomas Ignatius Gasson was an American Catholic priest and Jesuit. Born in England, he emigrated to the United States at the age of 13, and was taken under the care of two Catholic women in Philadelphia, which led to his conversion to Catholicism soon thereafter. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1875, and studied theology at the University of Innsbruck in Austria, where he was ordained a priest. Upon his return to the United States, he became a professor at Boston College, before being named President of Boston College in 1907.

As President, he initiated the relocation of higher educational establishments on the South end of Boston to a new campus in chestnut hill, Massachusetts, which he bought. He oversaw the construction of the new campuss first building, the hall of poetry, which was later named Gasson hall. For this, he became known as the Boston College "the second founder". His term of office came to an end in 1914, and he moved first to Maryland and then to Georgetown University, where he served as Professor of sociology for nine years. He then briefly led to the Institute of Manresa on Staten island, prior to assignment at Loyola College in Montreal, where he died in 1930.
