 Andrew Carnegie amassed an enormous fortune in the steel industry and then became a major philanthropist. During the late nineteenth century, when steel would be used first as railroad track, Carnegie perfected low-cost steel production. The Carnegie Steelworks, in Homestead, Pennsylvania, employed men producing steel under primitive industrial working conditions. This program will feature the 1892 strike at Homestead which pitted the Pinkerton Detective Agency against the steelworkers ending with ten deaths. After Carnegie sold his steel company to J.P. Morgan he gave all his money away by building over two thousand five hundred libraries. Many still exist today. 

Presenter: Rick Feingold teaches American Business History at Bergen Community College and holds an MBA from Penn State University.
