The Curious Truth:Ghosts and haunted mysteries of St. Bonaventure

Back

 

 

   Willie Cooper can be identified first as a World War II veteran.  His second identity is clearly one of the legends that haunt Devereux Hall. 

   It is said that Willie visited the building annually walking the back wing where he was able to look out over a war memorial that formerly stood outside the building. 

   It is said that when one walks by the memorial his name stands out.  The memorial is quite old and has experienced a great deal of weathering.  Although a majority of the names have become faded and unclear, his name shines through bright as ever. 

   Since a series of construction around campus the memorial has been moved, but whether Willie still walks the halls is a mystery.
