This chef hat was worn by George A. Molchan as part of his costume for the character of "Little Oscar," spokesman for Oscar Mayer, from 1951-1987. Molchan worked mostly in the Midwest, making public appearances at supermarkets, on television shows, and at various public events. He was the last Little Oscar. He tried to recruit replacements, but was unable to find anyone with the right combination of small stature and winning personality. When Molchan retired Oscar Mayer retired the Little Oscar character as well.
