1. On this day in 1921 A.A. Milne gave his son Christopher Robin a teddy bear for his first birthday. Today, that very same bear and a few other stuffed animals from Christopher’s childhood — you may know them better as Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends Piglet, Kanga, Eeyore and Tigger — reside here at The Stephen A. Schwarzman Building and are currently on display as part of the exhibition The ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter. Come by and say hello to Pooh and his pals!
