    Mrs. Hairston should be congratulated for her inspiration and motivation in the making of such a good science writer.

    I long have used the Brooklyn Museum’s Egyptian collection to get my kids to visit. We always went to view the mummy before we’d go anywhere else in the museum. My 17-year-old son Ben visited the museum yesterday with a classmate for a school video project and, sure enough, the first place he went was the mummy! So the tradition continues.

      Thanks, Mark. Mrs. Hairston was a treasure. Sadly, she passed away several years ago. But we had reconnected in my adult life, which was a wonderful gift.

      I’m glad the mummies have a special place in your family, too.
