About Clifford Kennedy Berryman
Clifford Kennedy Berryman (1869-1949), American artist and cartoonist, famous as the originator of the Teddy Bear, during Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency.
In 1886, when he was 17 years old, Berryman moved from Kentucky to Washington, DC, to work at the U.S. Patent Office, where his talents as a self-taught illustrator were employed to draw patent illustrations. In 1891, he became a cartoonist’s understudy for the Washington Post. By 1896, he was the chief cartoonist. In 1907, Berryman took the position of front-page cartoonist at the Washington Evening Star. Berryman drew political cartoons for the Star until his death in 1949.
Berryman’s most famous cartoon, “Drawing the Line in Mississippi,” appeared in the November 16, 1902 edition of the Washington Post. The cartoon portrayed the image of a “teddy bear” for the first time, appearing next to President Theodore Roosevelt.
By some estimates, Berryman drew over 15,000 cartoons in his lifetime and his work was recognized in 1944 with a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning. In 1949, President Harry Truman complimented Berryman saying, “You are a Washington institution comparable to the Monument.”
