MGS Journal Article on Babe Ruth
August 2018 marked the 70th anniversary of Babe Ruth’s death, but the popularity of this American icon – and Baltimore native son – lives on.
In 2017, MGS published an article on Babe Ruth's genealogy in the Maryland Genealogical Society Journal. It upends some old myths and traces Ruth’s family back to his immigrant Ruth great-grandfather and to earlier Ruth ancestors in Germany.
