Born in Raton, NM, to Charles W. and Mattie (Ray) Sinnock, John Ray Sinnock came to Philadelphia to attend the Pennsylvania Museum School of Art in 1909 and remained in Philadelphia, later becoming an instructor at the School after he had completed his undergraduate work in 1914 and graduate work in 1915. He was also an assistant medalist at the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia (1917-1920) and a designer with the C. J. Connick Studios in Boston, MA (1924-1926). His mural decorations often appeared in Philadelphia city schools, and in 1926 he became chief medalist and engraver for the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia.
