ABQ, in the confines of my mind, there is a vague recollection of what you are referring to. Father Kotlanger (USF '68), a teacher at St. Ignatius and the USF achivist, may know. Also, Peter Devine whose family roots parallel USF may know. Their knowledge of USF history is superb.
So many of the Jesuits who knew this history have passed away - Father McGloin, Father Dullea, Father Smyth, Father Fischer, Father Coleman, Father Reed, Father Early, Father Sunderland, Father Stackpoole - many were native San Franciscans and the others were enamored with SF and USF. What an amazing history was created by their legacy!
I can remember when we were first told about USF being built on a former cemetery. My favorite uncle was a funeral director so we all were imbued with a deep respect for funereal rights and respect for the deceased. I was impressed that they built our school on ground that had once been a burial site. [I never shared this information with my dad's side of the family because on one occasion, they discovered that they had spent the night housed in a motel across from a cemetery and my poor dad had to calm his hysterical female cousins. My dad advised them that the dead could not harm them but that failed to stem the tide of hysteria.]
