     Edith attended Columbia College, New York CityG, in 1896 and 1897. She was on the editorial board of several college magazines.4
     In 1900 Edith was living at Madison Avenue, New York CityG, in the household of her parents Augustine and Charlotte, and was recorded in the census as Edith R Sackett, aged 24 and born in New York.5
     Edith applied for a passport on 24 January 1910, intending to travel abroad temporarily.6
     In 1910 she was living at Madison Avenue, New York CityG, in the household of her parents Augustine and Charlotte, and was recorded as Edith R Sackett, aged 34.7
     In 1920 she was living at Madison Avenue, New York CityG, in the household of her widowed mother Charlotte, and was recorded as Edith R Sackett, aged 44.8
