Salute To City

WAY BACK WHEN

June 25, 1995|By Fred Rasmussen

Although Baltimore City College was founded as a public high school in 1839 by an ordinance of Mayor Sheppard C. Leakin, it wasn't until 1896 that the school turned out its first yearbook, called "The Green Bag." G. Warfield Hobbs Jr., a member of that year's graduating class, organized the staff and edited that first issue. This year the school is celebrating the 100th issuance of "The Green Bag," which through the years has chronicled the graduating class and the student life of the nation's third-oldest public high school. To mark the occasion, here's a selection of pictures from the City College archives.
