Riven Rock is one of Montecito’s most fabled estates and behind its gates was played out a family story of high drama.  Stanley McCormick, heir to a large fortune, married Katharine Dexter, only the second woman to graduate from M.I.T., in 1904.  Their love match was shattered by Stanley’s progressive mental illness, ultimately diagnosed as a form of schizophrenia.  What followed was a prolonged battle among Katharine, the McCormick family, and members of the medical profession over what was best for Stanley, a struggle that ended up being decided in the courtroom.
