The Kewaunee County Historical Society will feature a local automotive icon of the 20th century during a meeting that starts at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the society’s History Center, 217 Ellis St., Kewaunee.
Mildred “Millie” Rabas founded Algoma Motors with her husband, Jim, in 1937. At one time she was believed to have sold more Pontiac GTOs than any other woman in the United States. She died in August 2010 at 97.
The society will be playing an interview recorded in 2002 in which Rabas talks about her family, adventures of visiting a number of countries, her experience as a teacher in a one-room school, and the business venture with her husband.
