Origin of teddy-bear

It was Morris Michtom, the owner of a candy store in Brooklyn N.Y., that made the first “Teddy Bear" in the year 1902 in honor of then American President Theodore “Teddy" Roosevelt when as the story goes she had heard he'd refused to shoot a bear cub on one of his hunting trips.
