This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Robert “Bob” Satterfield, born in Sharon, Pennsylvania, entered the creamery business and developed his artistic work in idle moments.  His cartooning career began when he sold a cartoon to Robert F. Paine, editor of The Press in Cleveland in the 1890’s.

He became a political cartoonist with the Binghamton Sun, Cleveland Press, Cleveland News,  Sandusky Register, and Kansas City World

Inspired by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s passion for hunting and the subsequent introduction of the Teddy Bear, he created his cartoon panel Sat’s Bear, which, beginning in 1910, was a feature of Cleveland’s daily life.  He later conducted the Satterfield cartoon service, and much of his later career was with the Newspaper Enterprise Association.  He was especially noted for his comic strip The Family Next Door during the 1920’s.

Satterfield participated in the Cleveland Museum of Art’s May Show from 191 to 1933, working in the medium of oil painting.  In the late 1930’s he retired to Glendale, California.  For the last 12 years of his life he suffered with heart disease and died on February 17, 1958.
