How the loveable Teddy Bear came into being

In November 1902, a political cartoon appeared in the Washington Post showing Theodore Roosevelt refusing to shoot a bear cub while on a hunting expedition in Mississippi. The cartoon was so popular that prints were made of it; and subsequently the bear followed the President wherever he went.
Morris Michom, an enterprising small store owner in New York, cut out a plush toy based on the bear cub picture, and got the President’s permission to call it “Teddy’s Bear”.
