From Trouble Boys:

The Academy of the Holy Angels in Richfield, a first-tier suburb just south of South Minneapolis, had been all-girls school for most of its first century.

Founded in 1877 as an institution of learning for fledging nuns, it became a private day school in 1931. It began admitting boys in 1972. Paul Westerberg was a member of the second class that included males.

"I was a little hesitant to go 'cause it had been all-girls," he said. "But that also meant there was gonna be a lot of chicks there."

From Trouble Boys:

"Paul's first years were spent at 3734 Pleasant Ave, kitty-corner from the Church of the Incarnation, where Hal and Mary Lou had been married.

The house was within eyesight of the Catholic school Paul attended until he was a teenager."
