"POLAR THE TITANIC BEAR" was penned byDaisy Spedden. The story was apparently stored away after the tragic death of young Frederick Spedden, in 1915, in an automobile accident.

After Frederick's death, Daisy did not keep up the writing, about her family, that she had been doing.

"POLAR" was discovered by one of her cousins' families, who gave permission for it to be published.

There is a brief postscript at the end of the book.
