Biography of Catherine Eddy Beveridge

Chicago diarist, socialite and philanthropist.

Catherine Eddy Beveridge was born in Chicago, Illinois, on June 29, 1881. She was the daughter of Augustus Eddy, a businessman from a prominent ministerial family, and Abby Spencer Eddy, whose father Franklin Fayette Spencer founded a successful hardware company. Catherine had one brother, Spencer Fayette Eddy, born in 1873.

Growing up, Catherine was highly influenced by her mother, Abby Eddy, and her aunt, Abby's sister Delia Caton Field. Both women were social leaders in their native Chicago and wished to see Catherine take on a similar role upon reaching adulthood. Her mother and aunt saw to it that Catherine received an education appropriate for a girl of her station, including studies in literature, history, and foreign languages. Catherine also traveled extensively in Europe and developed an appreciation for architecture, painting and music. Through her brother Spencer's diplomatic connections, Catherine was offered entree into the European social world and was presented at the Court of St. James in London in 1898, at the age of sixteen. In 1900, she was formally introduced to Chicago society, and spent the next few years participating in Chicago's social seasons and traveling with family and friends. The years 1902-1908 are described in detail in Catherine's diary.

Abby and Delia were hopeful that Catherine would find an appropriately wealthy and cultured husband among the European aristocracy, but during a 1904 visit to Washington D.C. Catherine met Albert J. Beveridge, a forty-two year old Republican Senator from Indiana. Despite the misgivings of Abby and Delia, Catherine continued to see Albert throughout the next few years, and their romance deepened. In August of 1907, Albert traveled to Berlin where Catherine was staying and the two were married. The couple had two children, Albert Jr., born in 1908, and Abby, born in 1910. After Albert's Senate term ended in 1910, the family divided their time between Indianapolis and Beverly Farms, Massachusetts.

After Albert's death in 1927, Catherine devoted her time to philanthropic activities and keeping in contact with family and friends. She was an especially generous benefactor to art museums, including the National Gallery in Washington, the Art Institute in Boston, the Herron Art Institute in Indianapolis, and the Chicago Art Institute. She died on May 28, 1970.

In 2005, Catherine's grandson, Albert J. Beveridge III, published The Chronicle of Catherine Eddy Beveridge with Chicago writer Susan Radomsky. The book reprints reprints Catherine's diary and includes an personal introduction and afterward written by Albert J. Beveridge III, as well as a detailed family history and index of persons mentioned in the diary.

Scope and Content of the Collection

Correspondence, personal materials, writings, and photographs of Chicago diarist, socialite and philanthropist Catherine Eddy Beveridge, and materials collected by her related to her family, including her husband Albert J. Beveridge, her parents Augustus and Abby Eddy, her brother Spencer Eddy, her grandfather Franklin Fayette Spencer, and her aunt Delia Caton Field. Catherine's genealogical research is also included, and three family albums she compiled.

Catherine Eddy Beveridge was born into a wealthy, prominent Chicago family, and her writings, personal papers, and collected family materials document the rarefied social world she inhabited. Her grandfather, Franklin Fayette Spencer, founded a successful hardware business, her brother Spencer Eddy served in the diplomatic arena, and her aunt Delia Caton Field was a well known social leader in Chicago through her marriages to Arthur Caton and Marshall Field. The materials in the Catherine Eddy Beveridge papers reflect the affluent standard of living Catherine and her circle enjoyed, including lavish weddings and parties, handsome homes in the Prairie Avenue district of Chicago, and extended travel abroad. Insight into the lives of women is particularly vivid, illustrated by Catherine's descriptions of European shopping trips for custom-made fine clothing, and the inclusion of engagement books, guest lists, and menus reflecting the daily obligations of a prominent social leader and hostess such as Delia Caton Field.

Narrative descriptions of the subject matter, types of material, and arrangement of each series are available through the Organization section of the finding aid.

Series 6: Family Albums, 1870s-1946

Albums assembled by Catherine Eddy Beveridge about her family. Logs compiled by Susan Radomsky in 1999 correspond to photographs, but the albums also include letters and other memorabilia. Loose photographs were removed to the Photographs series. Letters were photocopied, with the originals removed to the appropriate series and the photocopies left in place of the originals. Album I references Franklin Fayette Spencer and the hardware business he founded. Album II contains photographs, clippings and memorabilia about Franklin Fayette Spencer, Rachel Macomber Spencer, Mary Spencer, Delia Caton Field and Marshall Field, Spencer Eddy, and other relatives. Album III is primarily photographs and clippings from Abby Eddy and Delia Caton Field's young adulthood and weddings. Also included are family photos of Abby Eddy, Augustus Eddy, and a young Spencer Eddy.
The Autograph Book was compiled by Rev. John Henry Barrows, Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church and later President of Oberlin College. Barrows was President of the World's Parliament of Religions held in connection with the World's Columbian Exposition in 1983, and collected most of the autographs during this time. Other autographs are included on letters written to Catherine's brother Spencer Eddy during his time as a foreign diplomat.
