Lecture -- Margarete Steiff--The Woman Behind the Teddy Bear

It is common knowledge that President Theodore Roosevelt, who was born 165 years ago, was the namesake of the iconic Teddy Bear. Hardly anyone knows that this delightful toy was invented by an amazing woman who overcame terrible sickness and incredible challenges and turned her tiny workshop into one of the most recognizable international brands-- and all that in the male dominated world of the 19th century! Join German historian Anette Isaacs as she relates the story of the truly awe-inspiring life of toy maker and business maven Margarete Steiff.  This program is offered in partnership with OLLI at FIU.
