1951 Terri Lee Doll Patent designed by Maxine Runci & Violet Gradwohl. The patent application was submitted on November 20, 1951 and was finally issued by the United States Patent Office on March 31, 1959.
The Terri Lee doll was modeled after a real four-year-old girl from Lincoln, Nebraska. Violet Lee Gradwohl and her niece, artist Maxine Runci, designed the doll after Runci's toddler daughter, Drienne. They named her Terri Lee after the nickname of Gradwohl's daughter. For Gradwohl and Runci, Terri Lee was designed to be a durable companion, a friend who could be carried everywhere, which is exactly what many little girls did with their Terri Lee dolls between 1946 and 1962.
