  • "A particular kind of black beaver hat fell in popularity when Franz Müller was in 1864 hanged for the murder of Thomas Briggs on the North London railway. Müller's hat, found in the railway carriage, formed the connecting link in a remarkable chain of circumstantial evidence. Henceforth 'müllers,' as they were called, were tabooed, and anybody who wore one risked having it smashed at sight." -- South Jersey Republican , January 8, 1910
