     The railroad tycoon, Thomas "Doc" Durant, wears a typical Haumberg.  Typical for that period that is;  Haumberg's today have both a smaller crown and brim.  The difference between then and now is that men didn't then wear hats as a fashion statement.  Men wore hats for protection from the elements.  Secondarily, the Haumberg did make a statement.  This is the hat worn by an important man.  The bank president would wear a Haumberg while the office workers would wear Derbys/Bowlers.  Thomas Durant was indeed an important man.
