I learned recently that the real Dr. Seuss, Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel, who wrote all those great books, was a hat collector, thanks to an article in the New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/04/books/dr-seuss-himself-was-a-cat-in-the-hat.html?_r=0. No wonder he could write "The Cat in the Hat," and the Grinch wore a hat.

What a great and original idea. Here are a couple of photos from the JRB website:
