Quote about Bill's Hat

"Joyce [Wieland's] friends liked wearing her old raccoon-fur hat, and it looked different on each person. This gave her the idea of traveling around the United States and Canada to give many people a chance to wear her hat. Very quickly she discovered that people revealed their personality by the way they responded to her request that they put on the hat."
-- Jane Lind (source)
