Feingold, Rick Andrew Carnegie – From Steel to Philanthropy History,
History,
Life Skills- Finance
Andrew Carnegie, a humble Scottish immigrant, amassed an enormous fortune in the steel industry and then became a major philanthropist. During the late 19th century, when steel would be used first as railroad track and later in skyscrapers, Carnegie perfected low-cost steel production. The Carnegie Steelworks, in Homestead, PA, a classic company-town, employed every able-bodied man producing steel under primitive industrial working conditions. This program will use novelist Hamlin Garland’s descriptions of the furnace room and rolling mills in the Carnegie factory as well as the 1892 strike at Homestead which pitted the Pinkerton Detective Agency against the steelworkers ending with 10 deaths. The program ends with Carnegie’s “Gospel of Wealth” and philanthropic contributions endowing over 2,000 libraries. Presenter: Rick Feingold teaches “The Building of America” at Bergen Community College and holds a degree in History from Rutgers University.
