More information

Elinor Josephine Medill Patterson was born in Chicago, Illinois, the daughter of Robert and Elinor "Nellie" (Medill) Patterson. She would change the spelling of her first name to "Eleanor" as an adult, but would always be known as "Cissy," the name her brother gave her in childhood. Biographers believed that she deeply admired Eleanor Roosevelt and this could have been a motivation to change the spelling of her first name. Patterson said of Roosevelt, of whom she was a close friend that she is the noblest of women I have known. I admire her above all women. Her grandfather Joseph Medill was Mayor of Chicago and owned the Chicago Tribune, which later passed into the hands of her first cousin Colonel Robert R. McCormick, Joseph Medill's grandson. Her older brother Joseph Medill Patterson was the founder of the New York Daily News.
