The Teddy Bear Story
In November 1902, Clifford Berryman drew a political cartoon that was published in the Washington Post. It featured a small bear cub held at one end of a rope by a retainer, along with President Theodore Roosevelt of the United States, who refused to shoot it down during a hunting expedition. The stuffed bear that later became famous around the world as teddy bear was inspired by that cartoon. Incidentally, President Roosevelt had ‘Teddy’ as his nickname.
It was around the same time that Richard Steiff and a storekeeper in Brooklyn named Morris Michtom were inspired by the cartoon and designed such a bear. It is still unclear as to which one was designed first. Toy Company and Ideal Novelty were the labels under which the earliest teddy bears were manufactured, although they were not referred to as such then.
Berryman, who won a Pulitzer Prize during his career that spanned more than 5 decades, included the bear in several hundred political cartoons following the first one mentioned above and it was on account of those that it gradually came to be known as Teddy’s bear at first and then simply as teddy bear.
