Long before Monte, the first official mascot of the University of Montana-Missoula (UM) was Teddy. Over time a total of nine live bear mascots and two costumed mascots have represented UM. This exhibit tells the story of those bears through photographs, news stories and university publications. All materials are from Archives and Special Collections, Maureen and Mike Mansfield Library, University of Montana-Missoula. Comments and questions regarding the exhibit can be sent to
