Edith Rockefeller McCormick: Philanthropist, Intellectual, Analyst

Edith Rockefeller McCormick (1872-1932) played a vital role in supporting Carl Jung’s practices and disseminating his writings. In addition to underwriting translations of his work, McCormick provided a physical location for the Psychological Club in Zurich in an effort to
bring the Jungian community together. The early years of the Psychological Club were not without problems, as the key players (including Edith and her husband Harold Fowler McCormick) wrestled with how to structure the club. In time, Jung appointed the deeply intellectual McCormick an analyst in her own right and she practiced pro bono in Chicago for the remainder of her life. McCormick’s son Fowler McCormick also had a lasting relationship
with Jung, traveling with Jung in the American Southwest, India, and parts of Europe. In this program, author Andrea Friederici Ross will present a biographical sketch of Edith Rockefeller McCormick with a heavy focus on her eight years in Zurich with Jung. Materials shared will include excerpts from correspondence among McCormick family members and Edith’s father, John D. Rockefeller. Following the biographical presentation, analyst Dr. Kennon McKee and academic psychologist Dr. Victoria Drake will join Ross in a discussion about McCormick’s life and interactions with Jung.
