Event Details

Andrew Carnegie led the expansion of the steel industry during the late
19th century, becoming one of the wealthiest men in American history.

After his retirement in 1901, he became a philanthropist, believing in the
“Gospel of Wealth”, meaning wealthy people were obligated to give
money back to members of society. Hear how Carnegie’s philanthropic
interests centering around education and world peace led to the
establishment of public libraries.
