Milwaukee Magazine president and publishing icon Betty Quadracci died on Monday night. She was 75.

Quadracci co-founded the printing company Quad/Graphics with her late husband Harry in 1971.  The company purchased Milwaukee Magazine in the 1980s, and Quadracci served as its publisher until earlier this year.

Milwaukee Magazine's chief editor Kurt Chandler says Quadracci wanted to make sure her publication wasn't just another city magazine.
