Teddy Bears got their name from Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States.

In 1902, the president went bear hunting in Mississippi without success, so members of his party caught a bear cub, tied it to a tree, and offered it to the president as an easy trophy. The president refused. The event was drawn by a cartoonist for the Washington Post the next day. The cartoon emphasized the helplessness of the bear and conveyced the message that Roosevelt would not make decisions for the wrong reasons. Roosevelt’s popularity soared as a result of his actions and the artoon. Morris and Rose Michtom made a stuffed bear in honor of the president’s actions.
