Born and raised in Bay City, Michigan, Hilda Mueller went on to become an international record holder in outboard-powered hydroplane boats as an amateur and professional driver using Brady Boat Company and Century Boat Company boats in Class A, Class B, and Class C. She went on to marry her mechanic, Earl Wuepper. She retired the first time in 1933, but came back in 1934 for a short, but unsuccessful, second career in the sport. The collection includes photographic slides, digital images and photocopies of her personal scrapbooks, copies of the newspaper clippings collected by her sister Lily Mueller, and an oral history of her son Tom Wuepper from 2005.
