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 (gel1;rally in the presellce of a strong breeze). He found that a Panama was m9;e efficient than various types offelt hats ~hile a lady's pith helmet and a ran's polat, both write, were more efficient than the Panama. I have some to simIlar conclusions by a somewhat different method.
