The informant and I both attended the same high school. I had the opportunity to visit him in San Francisco, and we talked a bit about our time in school. We remembered a couple of stories that were passed around about the dormitories and the school chapel.
Interviewer: I remember that there were rumors of a ghost that haunted Merritt House’s basement and bathrooms, but I think the most popular rumor was that of the chapel ghost.
Informant: Ah yeah yeah… you mean the blue boy right?
Interviewer: I think that’s what he was called. Do you remember how it went?
Informant: Somewhat, it’s been a couple of years since I graduated… But if I remember correctly it had something to do with the chapel’s underground passage. It’s haunted by a ghost of a blue boy, and it’ll appear if you go there during Winter by yourself. I think.
Interviewer: People said that sometimes the blue boy would show up in the lower levels of the school buildings as well. Never ran into him though.
Informant: Neither did I. None of my friends did either, I’m pretty sure it was just a stupid rumor.
Interviewer: Do you remember how it came to haunt the chapel? That’ll probably be good for the report.
Informant: Uhh… I think he’s called the blue boy because he was stuck outside during a snowstorm and froze to death. And, supposedly, they found his body in the chapel. And after that they started seeing his ghost in the chapel crypts.
