John Batterson Stetson was born on May 5th, in East Orange, New Jersey. His father, Stephen Stetson was a successful hatter who ran the No Name Hat Company. The company was known for their superior quality hats and John B. learned the trade as a child. It is said that the No Name Company made hats for George Washington

John B. headed west to recover from tuberculosis, which he developed as a young man. He decided to try his luck and venture to Pike’s Peak to seek a fortune in gold. Roughing it in the wilderness, John used primitive felting techniques to create water repellent blankets and the first hat to protect him from the elements. This was the original “Boss of the Plains”; a Western hat that would become the cornerstone of Stetson’s hat business and is still in production today.
