Wasn't there a time (this is NFL now) where everybody wore white hats?

A good place to look is books on the history of the game. You can almost always find shots of officials in the shots of star players, which seem to be very prevalent in historical books (and they're cool to look at). You can see how styles have changed over the years. Most of the photos are black and white, obviously, but you can see the changes.

Sometimes you'll see old AFL game films and their officials had red stripes instead of black.
