    Beery was born the youngest of three boys in 1885 in Clay County, Mis­souri, near Smithville. The Beery fam­ily left the farm in the 1890s and moved to nearby Kansas City, Mis­souri, where the fa­ther was a po­lice of­fi­cer. He may have had an older sis­ter based on a sus­pected re­cent found Vic­to­rian photo of a boy who strongly re­sem­bles Beery and an older girl. Beery at­tended the Chase School in Kansas City and took piano lessons as well, but showed lit­tle love for aca­d­e­mic mat­ters. He ran away from home twice, the first time re­turn­ing after a short time, quit­ting school and work­ing in the Kansas City train yards as an en­gine wiper. Beery ran away from home a sec­ond time at age 16, and joined the Rin­gling Broth­ers Cir­cus as an as­sis­tant ele­phant trainer. He left two years later, after being clawed by a leop­ard.
