Dr. Thomas Hoving (January 15, 1931 – December 10, 2009) was an American museum executive and consultant and the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He helped launch blockbuster exhibitions, or grand spectacles that were heavily advertised and drew large crowds for weeks on end. Mr. Hoving had a major part in arranging one of the country's first museum blockbusters, the exhibition of artifacts from the tomb of the Egyptian King Tutankhamun. Mr. Hoving then spent six years as a cultural correspondent for ABC's "20/20" and, from 1981 to 1991, edited Connoisseur magazine.
