Bear in the White House (01/16)

While working on a book about our Presidents (I work for a book publisher), I learned the following fact:

When explorers Lewis and Clark returned from their expedition, they brought Thomas Jefferson a grizzly bear. He kept it in a cage on the White House lawn.

I wonder if the grizzly ever wrote a book...

I wonder if this White House pet ever wrote a book...
