HONOREE Jane Gilman, in Davy Crockett hat, accepts flowers from chamber president Steve Kramer.

Larchmont Chronicle co-founder and former publisher Jane Gilman was honored Jan. 11 at the Greater Miracle Mile Chamber of Commerce board meeting.

Recognized as a “trail blazer,” Gilman donned a Davy Crockett-style coonskin cap as she accepted the chamber’s first annual honoree award.

“As Mae West said, ‘I climbed the ladder of success wrong by wrong,’” said Gilman. “Fortunately, I have been able to do it right by right.”

Accepting a bouquet of flowers from the Chamber, Gilman thanked “the many faces” in the crowd that she recognized, noting it brings back a lot of great memories.

“I’m really flattered to be up here,” she confessed.

Gilman helped revive the Miracle Mile chamber in 1996, said president Steve Kramer, who praised her years of commitment to the neighborhood.

Next month, the Larchmont Chronicle will publish the 31st annual Miracle Mile edition, a tradition Gilman first started to promote businesses and serve residents in the Mile.

The Chamber will meet on Thurs., May 3, for its annual “State of the Mile” luncheon, to which the public is invited. Visit for more information.
