A Hat Story

Here's one for you hat-lovers out there, from the May 1957 Disneylander:
The Power of Advertising - or "Now I've Heard Everything" - Seems that last week a jet pilot flew in from his base in North Carolina - at 600 miles per hour, no less - landed at the Los Angeles airport, and came to Disneyland via Helicopter. All this burst of speed just to purchase 23 Derbys. Assuredly, we ARE living in an Atomic Age. The thought creeps in, why DID he want so many Derbys??

One of the Navy Jet Fighter squadrons actually had flight helmets that were made with derbies. I wonder if Disneyland is where they got their derbies?
