Timeline

1924 - In the year that Mildred N Harrison was born, Macy's department store in New York held its first "Thanksgiving parade" on November 27th at 9a - during church services but leaving plenty of time to attend the big football game between Syracuse and Columbia universities. The parade was held as a way to promote the opening of the “World’s Largest Store” and its 1 million square feet of retail space in Manhattan’s Herald Square. The parade was 6 miles long and included floats, Macy's employees dressed as clowns, cowboys, and sword-wielding knights, and animals from Central Park Zoo. Santa Claus, of course, brought up the rear - opening the Christmas shopping season for Macy's.

Dean died, his passenger and the other driver survived.

1967 - Mildred was 43 years old when on October 2nd, Thurgood Marshall was sworn in as the first black US Supreme Court justice.
