Daisy Corning Stone Spedden penned the manuscript for Polar, The Titanic Bear for her son, Douglas, after the family survived the Titanic disaster in 1912. The original booklet was found, among other items, by Leighton H. Coleman III, a distant relation of the Spedden family, in his grandfather's barn. After sending a copy of the story to the Titanic Historical Society, it came to the attention of Madison Press Books, who eventually published the story with Little, Brown and Company.

Laurie McGaw is well known for her portraits of renowned figures as well as her award-winning illustrations in Polar The Titanic Bear and African Princess. Her work has been featured in books, magazines, and private and corporate collections for over thirty years.
