Harris-Polk Hat Company was based in St. Louis, Missouri, and was a leading hat company in the early 1900s. Their most popular and best-selling hats were the “Thoroughbred” and “Worth”, the latter depicted here in this button. Harris-Polk Hats began in 1903, and was at one time run by J.W. Harris, who was also president of the American Association of Wholesale Hatters.
