Summary
Andrew Carnegie was once the richest man in the world. Carnegie made steel, steel made America, and Carnegie accumulated millions. Then, having succeeded in making more money than anyone else on earth, Carnegie determined to become the world's greatest benefactor by giving all his money away. There are few cities in the United States or the old British Empire that have not benefited from one of the thousands of libraries, swimming pools, and halls he funded. This program tells the story of the diminutive Scotsman who revolutionized steel making, terrified Wall Street, influenced presidents, endowed philanthropic foundations, smashed labor unions, and finally sold his businesses for 500 million dollars.
