Take a quick, two question survey about Floppy Hat Day: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TD57Y82

flopsy

In the spring of 1971, a state senator publicly criticized Professor Gus Stevens for wearing a hat “in the presence of ladies.” In response, Stevens organized the campus’ first “Floppy Hat Day,” at which members of the campus community, including President Spencer, wore floppy hats – the more outrageous the better. Stevens commented: “It’s not what we wear, but what’s under our hats that counts.”
