His sister Marnie said that he collected unique and historic hats using them as a foundation for his book The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, which marked its 75th anniversary last year. Making their way around the country “in a specially retrofitted old-fashioned steamer trunk,” the collection’s next stop is Northampton, Mass. See where else the collection will be touring in this NPR article.
