This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Aurora, Illinois on June 16, 1879, Edgerly spent her youth in Jackson, Michigan where her father was a railroad official.  She began drawing faces while quite young. 

As a teenager she traveled to Europe where she studied art in England with Frank Brangwyn and in Paris.  At the advice of John S. Sargent, she decided to specialize in painting on ivory. By 1894 Edgerly had settled in San Francisco where she studied at the Mark Hopkins Art Institute.  Before the 1906 disaster she often posed for photographer Arnold Genthe.  While in Washington, DC in 1919, she married Count Alfred Korzybski, a Polish army officer.

A resident of Chicago during her last years, she died there on July 13, 1954.

Member: Chicago Arts Club.

Exh: Mark Hopkins Inst., 1897.
