Millicent Rogers Boasts Multiple Donations to its Collection
The Millicent Rogers Museum was founded on the Standard Oil heiress' personal collection of Native American jewelry, textiles, paintings, and various other items she amassed during her time in the Southwest.
The collection began with approximately 888 objects. In the 62 years since the museum's founding, the collection has grown to over 7,000 items. Approximately 70 percent of the collection was obtained through donations, including a large gift of over 150 items from the Clark Funk estate.
