What would a Baptist minster wear in 1930s America?

Basically, I want to know if a Baptist minster could wear a cassock and/or a clerical collar in California in the 1930s.

I have tried to google variations of baptist attire, baptist cassocks, baptism and cassocks, do baptists wear cassocks etc. but the answers vary quite a lot. Some claim Baptist ministers would never wear a cassock, some say they sometimes do. I am confused and very ignorant it seems.

Help! Basically, I just want to know if I can get away with this or not!
