The Mayor who brought snow to Puerto Rico: Felisa Rincón

I remember her …. a great lady!!!


War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

Felisa Rincón de Gautier was an extremely popular mayor of San Juan, PR.

For 22 years “Doña Fela” looked after the homeless, the elderly, and renovated the San Juan sanitary and water systems. But to many people, her most spectacular feat was bringing snow to the children of Puerto Rico.

Doña Fela was extremely persuasive.

 She convinced Eddie Rickenbacker, the owner of Eastern Airlines, to send a planeload of snow to San Juan…for Puerto Rican children who had never seen it.

 Rickenbacker agreed. The event was such a success, that for three years in a row, he delivered a planeload of Christmas snow.

This is one of the many stories – and many accomplishments – of Doña Fela.

 The most popular mayor in the history of Puerto Rico.
