Millinery Monday
First Lady Bess W. Truman and the many photographs of her wearing hats inspired this set of photos, which first appeared on the Truman Library’s Facebook page as a weekly series, “Millinery Mondays.” According to Bess’s best friend, Mary Paxton, Bess “always looked more stylish than anyone else in the crowd…. Bess had more stylish hats than the rest of us did, or she wore them with more style….” These photos document Bess and her hats throughout her lifetime, as well as other interesting photos that we have found in our archival collection of men and women wearing hats.
