Who was Andrew Carnegie?
"Andrew Carnegie (25 November 1835 – 11 August 1919) was a Scottish businessman, entrepreneur, industrialist, and a foremost philanthropist.
Carnegie is one of the most well known captains of industry of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
He was an immigrant as a child with his parents. He built Pittsburgh's Carnegie Steel Company, which was later merged with Elbert H. Gary's Federal Steel Company and several smaller companies to create U.S. Steel. With the fortune he made from business, he later turned to philanthropy and interests in education, founding the Carnegie Corporation of New York, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Carnegie Mellon University and the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.
Carnegie gave away most of his money to establish many libraries, schools, and universities in America, the United Kingdom and other countries, as well as a pension fund for former employees. He is often regarded as the second-richest man in history after John D. Rockefeller. Carnegie started as a telegrapher and by the 1860's had investments in railroads, railroad sleeping cars, bridges and oil derricks. Andrew Carnegie built further wealth as a bond salesman raising money for American enterprise in Europe."
