Heiress, Philanthropist, Born in Brooklyn, Mary was the second child of Thomas and Charlotte Stillman. She Married Edward Stephen Harkness on 15 Nov 1904 in Manhattan. Their extensive wedding trip included Egypt, a place they both fell in love with. Mary was a natural collector who had an instinct for the beautiful. Modest giving was the characteristic of both, and for husband and wife to possess this same attitude is almost unheard of. Emma Harkness died in her mansion in Manhattan, she is entombed in the Harkness Mausoleum with her husband.
