What a wonderful coincidence to see this posted. I am doing a hat show in a Chicago suburb on Chicago Milliners and am well aware of Ms. Diller`s penchant for R. Hudd hats. An article in the Chicago History Museum Reseach Center from 1962 tells about this. I found this site by googling her name and hats today only to see this was the perfect time to continue my research. I was hoping to contact Ms. Diller for her recollections of Mr.Hudd`s hats, and stear me in the direction of pictures of her in these hats. I only have 2 of his hats, but think hers would be even more spectacular than mine.

Dear Phyllis you don`t know me but my uncle made you several hats. You know him as the mad hatter,or Raymond Huddlestun. I just wanted to let you know that he is doing great and talks about a lot. I wasn`t sure how to get a hold of you so this I hope will make it to you. We are in Muskegon
