Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes; Title supplied by cataloger.
Photograph caption dated May 26, 1962 reads, "Joan Dew left, Valley Times TODAY Fashion Editor, presents Mrs. Ralph B. Howell of North Hollywood with an award from the Millinery Institute of America naming her one of the 'Best Hatted Women of the Year' in a nationwide contest. In recognition of her award, Joseph Rumelt, Millinery Manager-Buyer for May Co. Valley, gives Mrs. Howell her choice of a new spring chapeau. How could a woman be faced with a more difficult decision than to pick one hat from so many tempting creations? After much deliberation, Mrs. Howell chose a lovely summer straw."
