Happy National Teddy Bear Day! Political cartoonist Clifford Berryman is credited with introducing the teddy bear into the American vernacular after President Theodore Roosevelt famously refused to shoot an old, haggard bear during a hunting trip. Berryman changed the old bear into a cute, cuddly “teddy bear”—named for the President—and it became a common symbol in Berryman’s cartoons.

This self-portrait shows Berryman’s “signature style” in the “Making Their Mark: Stories Through Signatures,” on display in the National Archives Museum’s O'Brien Gallery through January 4, 2015.

“Making Their Mark: Stories Through Signatures” is made possible in part by the Foundation for the National Archives with the generous support of Lead Sponsor AT&T. Major additional support provided by the Lawrence F. O’Brien Family and members of the Board of the Foundation for the National Archives.
