Men with hats

When did hats ever go out of fashion? I’m not going to weigh in on how fashionable the hats worn here by president Calvin Coolidge (center) and his two successive White House secretaries, C. Bascom Slemp (left) and Everett Sanders (right) are, but they probably were pretty snappy for their time. These days, presidents never seem to wear hats, unless you count the silly ones they are being prevailed upon to don on certain occasions. Now that I think about it, I could picture president Obama in a beret!


C. Bascom Slemp authored a book of selections from president Coolidge’s addresses titled, The Mind of the President, which comes with a helpful index of topics. However, it was published in 1926 and only covers the period until mid-1925.
