Another picture from my trip to the Autry Museum of Western Heritage
at Griffith Park, California. The above awesome hat was worn by Yakima
Canutt (11/29/1895 - 5/23/1986). Mr. Canutt was the first person to actually
choreograph stunts so that they were safe for stunt folks to perform. He is a
legendary stuntman and there is so much more to this person than I could
ever write here. I unfortunately do not know the hat's
maker or anything else about it.
