April 2, 2009 - "Mitzi Meyerson Day" in Chicago
A resolution was passed in Chicago City Hall, to declare April 2, 2009 as "Mitzi Meyerson Day" throughout Chicago and environs, and to dedicate a portion of downtown Wabash Avenue as "Honorary Mitzi Meyerson Way". This street sign is placed directly in front of the main entrance to Roosevelt University, where Mitzi was the first person in the school's history to graduate with a degree in harpsichord.
