ANDREW CARNEGIE: MAN OF STEEL, HEART OF GOLD? on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 7:00 PM
A man of contradictions, Carnegie was raised in poverty yet became the wealthiest man in America. Was he a self-made man or a heartless opportunist? Vicious union strike breaker or workers’ rights advocate? Ruthless robber baron or world famous philanthropist? When he died in 1919 at age 83, Carnegie was worth $480 million ($310 billion today) and had donated $350 million for various causes: several public libraries, international peace, Carnegie Mellon University, Carnegie Hall, and Tuskegee Institute.
