Edith E. Colby

b. May 20, 1872, d. March 28, 1942
  • Reference: 0056bpa
  • Edith E. Colby was born on May 20, 1872 in Dunbarton, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.1
  • She was the daughter of Edward H. Colby and Jennie F. Slye.
  • The census of 1880 shows:
    Edith E. Colby, daughter, 8, attending school; in the household of
    Edmond H. Colby, 32, sewing machine agent; and
    Jane F. Colby, wife, 30, keeping house;
    living at Goffstown, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire.2

  • The census of 1900 shows: Jean F. Colby, 50; and Edith E. Colby, daughter, 28, an underwear stitcher; listed with Alice M. Colby
    living at 151 Pleasant Street, Worcester, Worcester County, Massachusetts.
    Also living there was another boarder, Bertha F. Stone, 24; and a roomer, Anna Earl, 44, a dressmaker.3

  • Aspiring journalist Edith Colby came to Thompson Falls from Spokane in 1916 and took a job with the democratic Independent-Enterprise. Edith and others wrote some personal attacks on A. C. Thomas, chairman of the Republican County Central Committee, published in the paper. She and Thomas traded verbal insults and Thomas accused Edith of loose morals. Edith was enraged and stole a loaded revolver, which she showed to her boss, attorney A. S. Ainsworth, and her editor, John Manire. Manire showed her how to use the weapon and suggested that shooting Thomas would be good for the newspaper. The two men later testified that they had no idea Edith would actually pull the trigger. But she did. Edith met Thomas on the street and shot him three times. The coroner’s inquest found that both Ainsworth and Manire shared the blame with Edith. All three were arrested. Burton K. Wheeler of Butte, later a well-known political figure, was the relentless special prosecutor. However, the court dropped all charges against Ainsworth, and the judge directed the jury to find Manire not guilty. Edith pled not guilty by reason of insanity, and her mother testified that mental illness ran in the family.

    Newspapers across the Northwest covered the spectacular murder trial. Edith’s dramatic lapses into unconsciousness earned her no sympathy. Found guilty, she received ten to twelve years at Deer Lodge. Edith’s attorneys appealed, claiming that Wheeler maligned Edith Colby’s character during the trial and made public remarks that affected the verdict. The Supreme Court of Montana denied a new trial. Edith Colby served only two years at Deer Lodge, and returned to newspaper work.4
  • The census of 1930 shows: Edith E. Colby, 57, proofreader for a newspaper;
    living at 5728 Buena Vista Terrace, Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California.
    The home was owned, valued at $4000.5



  • The Los Angeles City Directory 1940 lists:
    Colby, Edith E. house 5728 Buena Vista Terrace.
  • The census of 1940 shows: Edith E. Colby, 67, proofreader for a newspaper, with 1939 income of $1000;
    living at Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California.
    The home was owned, valued at $3500.6

  • Edith died on March 28, 1942 in Los Angeles County, California, at age 69.7
