American socialite and opera patron. She was the fourth daughter of Standard Oil co-founder John Davison Rockefeller and schoolteacher Laura Celestia "Cettie" Spelman. Her brother was John Davison Rockefeller Jr. (1874–1960).
Edith and her father had an often stormy relationship, where her extravagance would often conflict with his frugality.
She married Harold Fowler McCormick, a son of Chicago's mechanical reaper inventor Cyrus Hall McCormick and Nancy Fowler, in 1895.
In 1913 she travelled to Zurich to be treated for depression by Carl Gustav Jung, and contributed generously to the Zürich Psychological Society. She returned to America in 1921 after an 8 year stay.
In 1930 Edith had a growth removed from her breast and died of cancer two years later on 25 August 1932 at the age of 59.
