    • Millie Robson (Amelia Popoff) is noted as the first woman to serve as Gerrish Township Clerk of Roscommon, Michigan. Millie ran for two terms, serving from 1972 to 1980. A woman who was rarely idle, she served as Treasurer of the Republican Party Finance Committee and also served as delegate to two state Republican conventions. Millie also participated with the Roscommon County Republican Women in addition to her membership with the Does at the Houghton-Higgins Lake Elks Club. Millie was married to her best friend, Tom Robson. Millie set aside funds to improve rescue equipment in the fire department and township roadways. A woman ahead of her times, Millie was a strong advocate of conservation measures. Millie practiced and encouraged other Higgins Lake property owners to use natural beach grass to sustain lake waters and set aside undeveloped lake property as reserves. A lover of animals, Millie photographed thousands of birds, squirrels, cats and dogs while living in her home at Higgins Lake, Michigan and while at her final home in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
