Background: A new wax representation of U.S. President Gerald Ford has been added to Madame Tussaud's famous collection of historical figures in London. And, at the same time, that of Mr. Ford's immediate predecessor, former President Richard Nixon, has been removed.
The model of President Ford, made by Madame Tussaud's chief sculptor, Jean Frasser, joined the grouping of American presidents in the waxworks' Grand Hall on Monday (16 December).
Other American leaders still on view at Madame Tussaud's include Presidents Washington, Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson -- but Mr. Nixon was removed, according to a Tussaud spokesman, party because of his resignation last August and partyly "because we only have room for so many figures -- about 250 -- at any given time". The figure of Mr. Nixon has been placed in storage.
