Making the Mummies Dance

The Metropolitan Museum of Art would not be what it is today if it wasn't for Thomas Hoving. The son of Walter Hoving, director of Tiffany & Co., and Mary O. Field, his step mother Jane Pickford Hoving later was the Republican challenger against Ed Koch for the US Senate from New York. He recounts his fabulous tales as director of the Met Museum in his memoir 'Making The Mummies Dance: Inside The Metropolitan Museum of Art'
