Gary is named in honor of Judge Elbert H. Gary (1846-1927) of the United States Steel Corporation.
In only a few decades, Gary emerged from an uninhabited area into a major industrial center.
Gary has experienced many fluctuations in populations, growth, and economy: from the boom in the 1920's when population jutted to 55,000 to hard hits in economy in the 1930's depression years and loss of manufacturing jobs in the 1970's.
