Today Is, Teddy Roosevelt’s Birthday…

Hi, Lakeside Stampers!

TheodoreTeddyRoosevelt October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919) was the 26th President
Images-5 of the United States. He is noted for his energetic personality, range of Images-7 interests and achievements, his “cowboy” image and robust masculinity. He was President from 1901–1909.

 

Roosevelt’s lasting popular legacy, however, is the stuffed toy bears—teddy bears—named after him following an incident on a hunting trip in Mississippi in 1902. Roosevelt famously ordered the mercy killing of a wounded black bear. After a national cartoonist illustrated the President with a bear, a toy maker heard the story and asked Roosevelt if he could use his name on a toy bear. Roosevelt approved and the teddy Images-8 bear was born. Bears and later bear cubs became closely associated with Roosevelt in political cartoons thereafter.

 

Thanks for looking!
