More pics of Khrushchev wearing the same Stetson while touring an Iowa farm & the Iowa Pork plant, before enjoying a hot dog.

The Stetson factory outlet store in St. Joe Mo. is still open as far as I know, I was there about a year ago. Actually I'm due for a trip to St Joe to that store.

Not to prolong this further but I hope maybe in the future someone will find the link to when Khrushchev might have been presented with a Stetson hat(s). I was unable to find much on his travels in Pennsylvania, don't even know that he was in Philadelphia. Pres Eisenhower owned a private home at Gettysburg, ajacent to the Gettysburg battlefield ( owned now by the US Park Service). He may have taken Khrushchev there.

The car was the 1950 Lincoln Mercury Presidential "Bubbletop" Limousine Eisenhower had made the executive decision to have built.
