Actress, dancer, and singer Patty Thomas was part of the troupe Bob Hope assembled to entertain US military audiences around the world. The tap dancer was only 21 years old when she set out with Hope and the others on the 1944 summer tour of the South Pacific. She was given this hat by the men of GROPAC (Group Pacific) 7, a naval supply base in the Marshall Islands. She can be seen wearing it on the left side of the artifact label. The special exhibit So Ready for Laughter: The Legacy of Bob Hope runs through February 10, 2019, at the Museum: https://goo.gl/A72nRf
