Deaths Elsewhere

September 17, 1992

Millicent Fenwick, who became a congresswoman at an age when most people retire and inspired a comic-strip character with her outspoken, stylish manner, died Wednesday at 82. Mrs. Fenwick gained fame in the 1970s for her independence and outspoken insistence on high ethical standards and prudent spending. The former model, editor and author of an etiquette book also was known as a pipe smoker, and as the inspiration for Garry Trudeau's Doonesbury cartoon character, Lacey Davenport.
