Totem Teddy Photo Exhibit Unveiling

Event Description:
The exhibit honors the legacy of the totem pole featuring a bear carving at top - nicknamed Totem Teddy - that resulted in the university changing its mascot from the Teachers to the Bears in 1923.

The photos in the exhibit showcase Totem Teddy's history from the time it arrived in a crate as a gift from an alumnus in 1914 to its rightful return to the tribe in Alaska it belonged to in 2003.
