Mother’s Hats: The Doris Elliott Collection

The Collection of 17 fashionable hats, owned and delightfully worn by the mother of Rand Elliott, represents the heyday of Downtown Oklahoma City. They graced the places where Doris Mae and Hubert dined, danced, shopped and painted the town. The era spanned post-World War II into the ‘60s – when department stores and streets bustled; movie theatres thrived. It is a celebration of hats and historic Oklahoma City – the OKC so many citizens fondly remember. People would dress up to go downtown. Especially Doris.
