SCHC Experts Next Door Series- “The Social Life of Hats”

May 20, 2021 @ 7:00 pm


The Saratoga County History Center’s  May episode of the popular virtual speaker series “Experts Next Door” takes place Thursday, May 20, at 7 pm featuring “The Social Life of Hats” with Dr. Tillman Nechtman, Professor of History at Skidmore College.  Grab your fedoras, Panamas, bowlers, pork pies, and boaters, because May’s episode of END is all about hats!  In particular, the role hats have played in Saratoga’s storied social scene.  Inspired by a spring 2021 course at Skidmore that utilizes Brookside Museum’s chapeaux collection, Dr. Nechtman’s presentation will include stories, students, and some silliness.  Participants are encouraged to wear their favorite topper and share their own social shenanigans.  

Episodes are free for SCHC members, and $5 for non-members.  Please register in advance at  Registrants will receive a Zoom link and other relevant information.  For questions, please contact Isobel Connell at
