Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which American President accented his looks with a stovepipe hat?

Answer: Abraham Lincoln

A fitting similarity to his body proportion, Abraham Lincoln is most often pictured wearing his stovepipe hat. A stovepipe hat is also known as a top hat. The stove pipe hat has tall sides, a flat top, and a broad brim. It has been said that Abraham Lincoln stored his speeches and documents inside his stovepipe hat.
2. What is a zucchetto, which is worn by prelates of the Catholic Church?

Answer: A small round cap

A zucchetto is a small round cap worn by prelates of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Pope wears a white zucchetto whereas the Cardinals wear red ones and Archbishops wear violet colored zucchettos. Translated into English "zucchetto" means "skull cap". The "zucchetto" in the Italian language is a diminutive of the word, "zucca", which means gourd or head. Interestingly enough, the word "zucchini" comes from the same root.
3. Which sultry female movie star of the 1930s created a sensation by wearing a top hat and tails in one of her first American movie roles?

Answer: Marlene Dietrich

Marlene Dietrich made her 1931 American film debut in the movie, "Morocco". Her role as a night club singer in this movie shocked audiences with her attire. In the movie, while appearing on stage, Marlene wore a black top hat and tails. In the 1932 movie "Blonde Venus", she again wore a top hat and tails, only this time Marlene wore her top hat and tails in white.

In her everyday life she almost always was photographed wearing a man's hat, and loved wearing trousers. With her sultry look and her great legs, she was usually cast as a "femme fatale".

In her later years, she starred in two films that demonstrated she did not need top hat and tails to beguile the audience. In 1957, Marlene played the role of Christine in "Witness for the Prosecution", followed by her 1961 portrayal of Madame Bertholt in the film, "Judgement at Nuremberg".
4. Which exciting traditional May event in the United States features a Top Ten Award for the best hat?

Answer: The Kentucky Derby

Attending the Kentucky Derby without many of the attendees outdoing themselves in creating large, beautiful, funny, or extravagant hats, would not seem as festive an occasion to many of the bettors and spectators of this popular event. The Kentucky Derby, of course, has its main focus on the horses who will contend for the Triple Crown. For the women competing for the most distinctive hat, there is a Top Ten List.

In 2011, a woman wearing her hat creation called, "Rain Forest", was voted number one.

In the May 2011 issue of "The PostGame" there is this quote: "A Kentucky Derby without distinctive hats is like a beach without sand."
5. Which female Saint is the Patron Saint of Milliners?

Answer: St. Catherine of Alexandria

St.Catherine of Alexandria is the Patron Saint of Milliners and her feast day is November 25th. Catherine was martyred in the fourth century because she refused to marry the Emperor Maximus. Nine centuries later Catherine became the patron saint of single women. Prior to modern times, on November 25, single women in France were given a cap-type hat to wear if they were over twenty-five years old and unmarried. Thus began the tradition of St. Catherine of Alexandria being associated with hats. Today in modern France, couture shops and milliners all close their stores, take to the streets and celebrate St. Catherine's Day by promenading in hats, giving parties and drinking champagne.

The term "catherinette" is used in France to denote a single woman.
6. What is the name of the hat that in the Irish culture means "old hat"?

Answer: A Caubeen

Caubeen means "old hat" in Gaelic. The Caubeen has a long history of change and color but has come to be standardized and represent the Irish Regiments of the United Kingdom. Hackles, (which are plumes), are a part of the Caubeen and are pinned to the front of it. Each Irish Regiment chooses its own hackle color. Today, the Caubeen of the Irish Regiment of the United Kingdom is a dark green beret. Green hackles adorn the Caubeens of the Irish Regiment of Canada. Irish Pipers also wear the Caubeen.
7. What was gangster Al Capone's favorite type of hat?

Answer: A Fedora

Photos of Al Capone usually show him wearing a fedora and smoking a cigar. A fedora is commonly made of felt. It has a medium brim with an indentation at the top. By the 1920s and '30s fedoras became a popular hat for gangsters to wear. In many period crime films of the 1940s and early fifties, the Hollywood movie industry featured mobsters and detectives wearing fedoras. "Martin Kane, Private Eye" (1949), was the first television detective series and it featured the actor, William Gargan, wearing a fedora and smoking a pipe.
8. Which sprightly woman was the founder of the "Red Hat Society"?

Answer: Sue Ellen Cooper

The Red Hat Society was founded by Sue Ellen Cooper in 1998. While shopping one day, Sue Ellen found an old vintage red hat in an antique store. She decided that it would be a perfect hat for her upcoming birthday. After buying the hat, she decided to give a red hat to her friend for her birthday. Soon a group of eighteen women-friends of Sue Ellen were choosing to wear red hats also.

This original group founded by Sue Ellen Cooper grew too large to assemble for tea gathering and so it extended invitations for other groups to form.

The next chapter of the Red Hat Society began in Florida. The Red Hat Society states as one of their goals for women to grow into middle age with humor. These groups of women are determined to greet middle age with fun and energy. Red Hat Society women promote friendship among women, celebrate birthdays, go on cruises, join parades and try to live life to its fullest.
9. Which comic book character was famous for wearing his crown beanie?

Answer: Jughead

The Crown Beanie worn by Jughead in comic books was made by taking a fedora hat and cutting the brim in a zigzag fashion and then turning the brim up. Jughead considered his crown beanie his good luck charm. In one episode Jughead was in trouble with the school Principal because he would not play on the school baseball team wearing anything on his head but his crown beanie.

He was the team's star hitter but when he was forced to remove his crown beanie and wear the team uniform baseball cap, Jughead went hit-less and the team lost its games.

The school Principal capitulated after a series of losses and allowed Jughead to wear his crown beanie. The team returned to its winning ways with Jughead in his beanie leading them on.
10. In the Western World what do you call a garment that is worn over the head, ears and chin?

Answer: A Wimple

Wimples are made by taking a cloth (usually white) and wrapping it around the chin, hair, and ears, and taking the remaining cloth and draping it about oneself in an attractive way. This form of headdress in Western culture is usually associated with orders of Roman Catholic nuns. The wimple is similar to the "hijab" worn my Muslim women. The wimple form of headdress for Western World women is thought to have originated with the Crusaders.
