|Physical Description:||6.3 linear feet (11 boxes and 1 oversize box)
|Scope and Content:||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.
