A Hat in the Ring

Emile Griffith, the welterweight champion of the world, obviously believes that a hat should go with gloves. Outside the ring, Emile works in a millinery factory in New York's garment district for a boss who is also his fight manager. He is shown at right putting a few finishing touches on a saucy pillbox as he recently put the finishing touch on Benny Paret to gain the championship. When not making millinery or flooring champions, Emile, a personable Virgin Islander, sings tenor in a church choir.
