Catherine is Myrtle Wilson's sister. When Tom, Nick and Myrtle go to New York City, they have a party at the apartment Tom keeps for the purpose of his and Myrtle's affair. The McKees are also at the party, and are not exactly pleasant people. The whole group gets drunk, Tom breaks Myrtle's nose when she won't stop saying "Daisy"...it is quite a scene.

Catherine is the sister of Myrtle Wilson, the lover of Tom Buchanan.  The McKees are people who live in the same building as the apartment that Buchanan seems to have rented for himself and Myrtle.  Mr. McKee is a photographer.
