This article analyzes Herbert J. Davenport's discussions of conspicuous consumption and feminism. Even though these (typically) Veblenian topics represent two "episodes" in many respects disconnected with the central body of Davenport's theoretical interests, the assessment of Davenport's views on these matters enlarges our knowledge of the development of his thought. Our analysis shows how Davenport can be enrolled among the forerunners of the modern theory of positional goods. Moreover, our article offers some new findings on the impact of Veblen's ideas on one of his closest students at the Chicago University.
