O'Gara Hall at Georgetown University
Walsh, W. F.
Georgetown College (1789-1815)
O'Gara Hall was named in honor of Martin J. O'Gara, S.J., who died in a plane crash returning from WWII after serving as a military chaplain. The plane did not have enough parachutes and O'Gara gave up his to save the life of a fellow passenger. O'Gara Hall served as an infirmary but was later converted to dorm space. The building was razed in 1984 to make room for Village C.
