Spotlight on Collections

Posted on December 27th, 2012 by

This month’s Spotlight on Collections falls on hats.  The JMM has an extensive hat collection that includes: men’s hats, women’s hats, religious hats, kippa, ceremonial hats, military hats, political hats – fancy, practical, unique, and mass produced.  You name it we’ve got it.  Some of the hats are in our collection because of the people who wore them and the part the hats played in the story of their lives, some of the hats are in our collection because they were produced by or for Jewish companies in Maryland.  This is only a small slice of our collection.  Enjoy.

This hat belonged to Samuel Sakols and was purchased at Katz, a leading Baltimore clothier for men.
