Derby Announces Class of 2020
Mayor Richard Dziekan is pleased to announce the selection of the 14th anniversary class for the Derby Hall of Fame. This year's class of three chosen by the Hall of Fame Committee brings the number of Hall members to 55. Normally, the members are announced in conjunction with Derby Day, but because of the coronavirus issue, it will not be held this year.
Mayor Dziekan said, "Dziekan said, “This year's class is diverse in its accomplishments. It includes an Italian immigrant who became the first from Derby to die in service to his new country in World War I, the man who designed the streetscape of what was the Borough of Birmingham and is better known as downtown Derby today, and the distinguished physician who served as Derby's fifth mayor as well as the first chairman of the board at Griffin Hospital.
