The Mad Hatter from Lewis Carroll’s "Alice in Wonderland." The exhibition "The Power of Poison" at the American Museum of Natural History includes a life-sized scene of the Mad Hatter -- because until hats went out of fashion, London was rife with hat makers driven mad by the mercuric nitrate required to loosen the fur from the skin.
