  • Edith Rockefeller McCormick was one of the most unconventional of Chicago’s grande dames. Her father was John D. Rockefeller, the oil baron and her husband was a son of Cyrus McCormick, inventor of the mechanical reaper that transformed farming. This made her a solid member of the industrial ruling class. Edith and her husband lived an extravagant lifestyle, which put her at odds with her father who was known for his frugality. She donated large sums of money and time to social causes. Brookfield Zoo was made possible because of her donation. Upon hearing that Cook County’s Juvenile Court, the nation’s first, didn’t have the money to pay probation officers, Rockefeller McCormick cut a check and that was that. She also provided financial support to James Joyce when he was writing “Ulysses," a novel considered a landmark of literary modernism. In the early 1900s, she traveled abroad to be treated by Carl Jung for depression and then she herself became a Jungian analyst. After returning to America, she divorced her husband, claimed she was the reincarnated wife of King Tutankhamen, and lived with a man whom she never married.
