Cardinal Gibbons School was founded in 1962 in Baltimore, MD where it succeeded the St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys, which was in operation from 1866 to 1950 and which is where Babe Ruth went to school. St. Mary's was a Roman Catholic trade school, whereas the Cardinals Gibbons school was a Catholic high school that closed down in 2010. In addition to Ruth, George Weicker went here.
