Abstract
Europeans in the tropics wear many kinds of headgear and apparently give little thought to their efficiency as insulators against the sun's radiation. CORSON"" tested, by means of clinical and other thermometers, the resistance of several types of hat to full sunshine (generally in the presence of a strong breeze). He found that a Panama was more efficient than various types of felt hats while a lady's pith helmet and a ran's pol? ~at, both write, were more efficient than the Panama. I have come to similar conclusions by a somewhat different method.
