|MISS MILLICENT ROGERS|
Miss Rogers, who spent the early summer at Tuxedo, is now prominently identified with the social activities of Southampton, where her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry H. Rogers, who have a beautiful estate with extensive gardens, delightfully adopted to entertaining.
Who knew “Miss Moneybags” would have her own wikipedia site, her own museum, a book - Searching for Beauty - The Life of Millicent Rogers and was on the list for best dressed women in the world from 1940-1946.
