Andrew Carnegie

An American early industrialist. He began working at a factory as a boy and ascended the corporate ladder until he founded Carnegie Steel Company, which later became U.S. Steel. Believed by many to be one of the richest men in history, he became a philanthropist in later life and gave away most of his money. Critics claim he was an opponent of organized labor who paid his employees poorly under harsh working conditions. His supporters contend he lived the American dream, rising from poverty to wealth through hard work and dedication. He lived from 1835 to 1919. See also: Robber Baron.
