Loyola Academy Faculty Big on Anderson Report List of Sex Abusers

Loyola Academy in Wilmette made the news in a big-time way today.

You see, today, the Minnesota Law firm of Jeff Anderson and Associates, released its list of 395 Chicago area and Downstate Illinois Catholic school teachers who have been implicated in the criminal sexual abuse of the children under their tutelage.

And more than a few Loyola Academy teachers made it onto that "rogues gallery" of child sex abusers.

In fact, one Loyola Academy teacher, Rev. Donald J. McGuire S.J, spent 25 years in the hoosegow, after Loyola grads, who were there in '68 and '69, successfully had him criminally prosecuted for sexually attacking them.

McGuire got this stiff sentence, because it was his second conviction for child sexual abuse.

One wonders why Loyola Academy re-hired him. Do you call that "enabling" on the part of the Loyola Academy administration?

And talk about "enabling", the notorious Rev. Ignatius M. Burrill S.J.  finally shows up on this list of Loyola Academy pederasts.

Every freshmen at Loyola Academy during the quarter century that this homosexual child molester was there, was warned by fellow students to "stay away from this creep."

Yet he was there, year after year - with the obvious sanction of the Loyola Academy administration.

And this, despite the fact, that he had been reported to Jesuit authorities for homosexual sex abuse of a minor at St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, in the 50's.

And the Loyola Academy administration pedophile enablers, actually gave this perverted priest appointments to do such things as "Counsel" incoming freshmen boys in the private counseling rooms. And to become the photographer for the boys swimming teams and water polo teams (whereon, he would always hang around the pool and take, "action shots" of the young boys in their form fitting nylon swimsuits.)

How weird is that?

It defies credulity, that the administration of Loyola Academy was unaware of this man's presence being a threat to their students.

And the Peterson Report listed the former President of Loyola Academy, Rev. Larry Reuter, S.J., for his scandal relating to his pedophiliac propensities. And the aforementioned Fr. McGuire, who seemed to prefer teaching classes of freshmen boys. And another Jesuit Scholastic, who taught at Loyola, and despite being credibly implicated in child molestation, was elevated to the priesthood in the Jesuit order.

There are several other clear pedophiles who taught at Loyola Academy and did not make it onto his list.

One peculiarly effete lay French language teacher comes to mind, who would ask students who raised their hands, "Do you have a query?" provoking raucous, muffled guffaws from his students.

And then there was the lay Latin teacher, who was thrown out of Fenwick High School for allegedly sexually assaulting students there, but was invited to teach at Loyola - until they were apprised of his tawdry background.

Neither of these 2 Loyola Academy faculty made it onto the Anderson Report. Lawyers are careful of protecting their flanks from lawsuits. But Loyola students from the era know.

This entire matter was blurred and smoke-screened by the cowardly Left-Wing Catholic Cardinal Blase Cupich, of Chicago, who argued that he had released all the names of those diocesan priests who were convicted , but did not have jurisdiction to release the names of those in the Orders.

Well the Anderson Law firm has done that . And they have substantiated the Jesuit order's own determination that these criminal Loyola Academy faculty, were deemed by the Jesuits, to have committed verifiable sex crimes.

No doubt, the leftist, secularist Loyola Academy establishment will cry, "Well that was a different time - and we are different now."

And they are. They admit non-males. They are only nominally at all Christian. Loyola Academy now admits Muslims, Jews, any manner of Protestants and atheists - and one hears a bus load of monied Zoroastrians will be showing up at the admission office at 1100 Laramie, any day now.

But that doesn't stop them from raising millions on the Loyola Academy name - and the Loyola Academy Catholic-Christian legacy.

So since Loyola Academy is now, just another North Shore suburban rich kids secular school,
why don't they just change their name to "North Shore Country Day School - South."

It could spare them a lot of ongoing bad PR and prospective corporate legal liability.

All these statutes of limitations haven't run out.


  1. Oh my God. That's just heartbreaking and criminal. To think this school allowed these men to prey upon the students that parents entrusted into their care - it's mindboggling. And how in the hell could any Alum send their own kids there, having been exposed to it themselves? Wow.

  2. Maybe the leftist faculty at the new, non-Catholic Christian Loyola Academy (they admit Muslims, Jews and all manner of others) will support their pederast predecessors as vanguards of LBGTQ "diversity."

  3. When Larry was at Loyola, the only thing they lead the Catholic league in was productions of Oklahoma!

    1. And don't forget to mention, that during the Larry Reuter era, Loyola also led the Chicago Catholic League in theatrical productions of "My Fair Lady," and precious little else.

      Had he stayed longer, they might have also led the League in productions of "La Cage aux Folles."

    2. When Larry had his farewell speech in the gym, he had the school pass out ice cream cones to everyone. So his last image of Loyola as President was a gym full of teenage boys licking cones. Makes me shiver to think how much he got off on that!

    3. Apparently the ice cream supplier couldn't meet Rev. Reuter's request for 1,700 popsicles.

      Glad we missed that event.
