 In the early 60's a woman in Riverside, California, by the name of Ann Baker created the RAGDOLL by breeding what was believed to be a white female persian- type cat to a sealpoint Birman. One of the male offspring was then bred to a female Burmese. This was the foundation for the RAGDOLL.
 
Allthough their have been further findings from Lorna Wallace, Robin Pickering and David Pollard in their book,'The Guide To Ragdolls' 
published by Ragdoll World UK.
 
At the time Ann had been borrowing one of Josephine's older sons to sire progeny in her black persian program. This son had the appearance of a Black/Brown Persian and she named him Blackie, and it was one of her visits to borrow him that she saw  Blackies brother. He appeared most immpressive and in Ann's words had the appearance of of a Sacred Cat of Burma,{The Birman Breed}. Having already established the owners trust, she was also permitted to borrow this cat to breed with one of her own females. she was most taken with  this son of Josephine and named him Raggedy Ann Daddy Warbucks. What Ann clearly states is that Blackie and Daddy Warbucks are both sons of Josephine, but differant sirers. In the IRCA booklet it would appear to indicate that Blackies father was a black cat from the East, that appeared more persian than Burmese. during detailed Questioning, Ann confirmed that no one had ever seen the father of Daddy Warbucks, and he was the only kitten in that particular litter of Joesphine's. This being so , makes it difficult to take the origins of the breed further.
 
The Ragdoll was first recognized as a pure breed in 1965 by NCFA{now defunct}. The following that achievement Ann did nothing further  the RAGDOLL in the fancy. Fortunately, a new breeder a husband and wife team bought a pair from ann and realized the breed had to be shown and accepted by varios associations in the fancy. RAGDOLLS are accepted today in all associations.   However , some associtions do not allow Ragdolls in cetain patterns to compete.
