I always thought that Carter Hall's occupation as a Museum Curator/Archaeologist was really cool and helped to set him apart from other superheroes. His adventures had ties to the past which juxtaposed nicely with the futuristic Thanagarian elements. The later concept of Hawkman being reborn throughout time really fed well into this appreciation of history. The Phantom is another character that has appeared throughout many eras, thanks to a mantle passed from fathers to sons. With such long legacies behind them both, a meeting between these two would be bound to happen sooner or later!
