The Last Tiffany: A Biography of Dorothy Tiffany Burlingham: by Michael John Burlingham. New York: Atheneum, 1989, 364 pp., $22.50.

Review by:
Allan A. Bloom, Ph.D.

This is a fascinating and disturbing story of a woman who dedicated her life to psychoanalysis—and lost most of her family in the process. Many know Dorothy Burlingham as a pioneering child analyst, confounder of the Hampstead Nursery and Clinic, and lifelong, inseparable companion to Anna Freud. She was also the granddaughter of Charles Tiffany (founder of the Tiffany jewelry empire) and last-born daughter of the famous American artist and designer, Louis Comfort Tiffany. This painstaking and respectful biography was written by one of Burlingham's grandsons. Spanning four generations of Tiffanys, it has the broad sweep of a Russian epic, with the poignant and tragic aspects of a gothic novel.

Dorothy Tiffany was born in 1891, at the apex of her father's career, just at the point of his ascendency over his own father.
