Andrew Carnegie was a Scottish-American industrialist turned philanthropist. In the late 19th century, Carnegie amassed a large fortune in the steel industry. With his resulting millions, which in today’s currency would be the equivalent of billlions of dollars, he became a large scale philanthropist, with an emphasis on local libraries, world peace, education and scientific reseach. He was the author of the 1889 article “The Gospel of Wealth,” in which he called upon his fellow industrialists to share their largesse for the common good.
