Carroll Thayer Berry (1886-1978) Biography

Carroll Thayer Berry (1886-1978) was a beloved figure in the town of Rockport, Maine. Born in New Gloucester, Maine, son of a dairyman, he was attracted to the sea and to the profession of engineer. Berry took his degree in engineering at the University of Michigan and returned to New England in 1909 as a mechanical draftsman for an engineering company in the Boston area. At this time, he also attended art classes at night.

In 1910, while working for an architectural firm in Portland, Maine, he traveled to Panama where he contracted malaria. He was sent home and eventually returned to his art studies, this time at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Berry returned to Panama to execute a group of murals celebrating the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914. Berry’s professional life took him to several American cities where he learned engraving, illustration, and much about the marine environment. He made murals, paintings and drawings of the great ship-building industry of Maine centered around the Bath Iron Works.

After World War II, Berry and his second wife, Janet Laura Scott, herself an artist, settled in the picturesque town of Rockport, Maine in the midcoast area. For the rest of his life, Berry created his famous wood engravings of the Maine coast to the delight of many residents and visitors.
