Week of March 11, 2002


"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan -- to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." -- Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address on March 4, 1865.

Question:
How did you choose which Hero Clubhouse™ duties would be performed by which of the IMA Hero™ Bears? (Jenna P.)

Answer:
The Hero Clubhouse™ duties are based on the needs of the Hero Clubhouse™. These duties are then delegated to the twelve IMA Hero™ Bears based on the bears' expertise and skills. For example, Abraham Lincoln was a U.S. President so the job of President of the Hero Clubhouse™ is given to Abe, and William Shakespeare was a brilliant writer so the job of Media Relations which involves a lot of writing is given to the Bard of Avon.

Question:
What was the name of the Brooklyn shopkeeper who displayed two "Teddy's Bears" in his store window in 1902?

Answer:
Morris Michtom.
In 1902, a political cartoon depicted President Teddy Roosevelt refusing to hurt an innocent bear on a hunting trip. Michtom, a Brooklyn shopkeeper, was inspired by this cartoon, and he asked his wife, Rose, to make two plush stuffed bears for display in his shop's window. With President Roosevelt's permission, Michtom called these "Teddy's Bears."
