Harold McCormick's wife, Edith Rockefeller McCormick, was the daughter of John D. Rockefeller and reportedly the one who nixed the Wright mansion in Lake Forest.
I've just been reading a little about her life.
She was severely unhappy.
Harold heard of a genius Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung.
Edith spent 1913 -1921 in Zurich in analysis with Jung himself.
Harold was over there also and they became "Jungians."
They talked the Jungian jargon, hob knobbed, and believed.
Edith came back to the States in 1922. She and Harold divorced.
Edith died 10 years later with very little money having been in practice as a Jungian analyst.
... sounds like she should have built the house in Lake Forest.
Nothing lasts forever
