Father of author F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Edward was born in "Glenmary" farm. He attended Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., for a while before moving west. On February 12, 1890, he married Mollie McQuillan in Washington, D.C. The reception took place at a townhome in the nation's capital kept by Mollie's mother, Louisa McQuillan. Governor William Merriam of Minnesota was in attendance. The couple spent their honeymoon in Europe, and returned to St. Paul where Edward ran a furniture store. When his furniture manufacturing business failed in 1898, the family moved to Buffalo, New York, where he worked as a salesman for Procter & Gamble. The family initially lived in the Lenox, one of the last hotels still remaining in Buffalo, which was considered a very fashionable place to live at the time. The following April, the family moved to a flat in a house at Summer and Elmwood Streets. In 1901, Edward was transferred to Syracuse, New York, but he moved his family back to Buffalo in September 1903, living at 29 Irving Place. In 1908 he moved back to St. Paul to work as a broker at "the brokerage house, and they lived with Mollie's brother Philip at 514 Holly. In 1911 they moved to 499 Holly, in 1915 they moved to 593 Summit, and in 1919 they moved to 599 Summit, where they were living when F. Scott wrote his first novel This Side of Paradise. They finally moved to Washington, D.C. where he and Mollie both died.
