The twelfth and final lecture on women of the Gilded Age in Southampton goes into detail about the life of Millicent Rogers. Strong-willed, though physically fragile, Millicent Rogers has a conflicted relationship with her father, Standard Oil heir Colonel Henry Huddleston Rogers Jr. As a young woman, she is strikingly beautiful, has her own unique style, and revels in the free-spirited behavior of the flapper. Her behavior seems designed to upset her father, though the world admires her chic and establishes her as a fashion icon.
