tracey the hatter2.jpg

No stranger to endorsing products, Ty Cobb, Major League Baseball outfielder, was willing to lend his name or likeness in exchange for a nice payday. Clothing was one such line, and this straw hat is one of the rarer Cobb items from the early 20th century. Made by "Tracey the Hatter," the inside top of the hat features the company name, "Norristown, PA - Erie, PA - Jamestown, NY" and the name "Ty Cobb." A 7-1/8" size tag hangs from the inside band. The hat has remained in remarkable condition, with just a bit of staining in the center inside, no cracking to the leather interior band, and good condition of the straw.

March 21, 2015 Post-Journal

In Years Past...1915...Tracey, the Hatter, opened his new store at 115 Main Street in Jamestown the previous morning. The place had been completely remodeled since it was occupied by the Wells Fargo Express Company and the present appearance was all that could be desired for an attractive and up-to-date hat store. Jamestown was the twelfth city to be selected by the Tracey concern for a branch store. Other stores were scattered over the eastern and central states. Edwin A. Tracey would have charge of the local store and he expected to make Jamestown his home. A goodly number of men visited the new store in the morning and afternoon and each visitor was presented with a souvenir in the way of a hat cleaner.

Board of Health Member: Edward Tracey, MD

Edward J. Tracey, MD, and his family. Dr. Tracey practiced surgery in Norwalk for many years and has served as a member of the Norwalk Board of Health since 1978. The Tracey family connection goes back much further than Dr. Tracey’s tenure on the Board and even further than Norwalk’s centennial. Dr. Ed Tracey’s grandfather, Dr. William J. Tracey, was Norwalk’s health officer from 1893 to 1913. According to Norwalk: An Historical Account (1979), the elder Dr. Tracey “was everywhere—peering into wells and water tanks, cesspools and sewers, privies and piggeries, marking mosquito-breeding pools, examining conditions in the Jail House, and tracking down every single case of typhoid fever.” At a time when infectious diseases and poor sanitation were leading causes of poor health, Dr. Tracey took the death rate in Norwalk from one of the highest in the state to one of the lowest.
