What a weird and fascinating story this thread makes—great research, Jack. Seems likely that this was the inspiration for LBJ’s tradition of giving hats to guests.
Carter first met LBJ in 1941 & supported Johnson’s run for the Senate. Carter believed in Fort Worth first, Texas second. I’m sure Johnson learned a lot from him & modeled his early political career to align with Carter’s principals & support.

Dated 1955 this pic would have been among the last taken before his fatal heart attack on June 23rd.
