Chicago’s Most Glamorous Women, Collier’s Magazine, 1953, Chicago.

Among this group of (all white) women, there is a Comiskey, a Swift, a Field, a Wirtz, a Goldblatt, and a Mendel.

What’s interesting (and telling of the time) is that all the women are listed by their husband’s name, i.e. Mrs. Marshall Field.

The lone rebel is a Mrs. Susan Gordon Bent, who refused to use her husband’s name.
