Here is a photo of the new Copley Hall in 1931.
The Hall was named for Thomas Copley, S.J. (ca. 1595-1652). Among its many external decorations is a large Latin inscription on its middle gable which reads: ‘Moribus Antiquis Res Stat Loyolaea Virisque.’ This has been translated as: ‘Loyola’s Fortune Still May Hope To Thrive, If Men and Mold Like Those of Old Survive.’ The south gable bears the family crest of St. Ignatius Loyola who founded the Society of Jesus, the lily of the seal of the University of Paris where he was educated, and the seal of the Society of Jesus.
