A new interactive platform has been launched to tell the story of Andrew Carnegie – the most successful Scottish-American and richest man in the World, who gave away his fortune to inspire others before he died.
Andrew Carnegie emigrated to the United States with his parents in 1848. 53 years later in the land of opportunity he sold his company to J.P Morgan for $480 million and the chapter of his philanthropic live began.
The new interactive platform encourages users to share elements of Andrew Carnegie’s story and a centralized source for a timeline, historical photos, rare documents, audio and video recordings of Carnegie, reading materials, and other easy-to-share elements that are all available for free as downloads and embeds.
As the father of modern philanthropy, Andrew Carnegie founded 2,509 libraries in which 1,679 are in the United States. With the fortune he made from business, he built Carnegie Hall and he founded the Carnegie Corporation of New York, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Carnegie Institution for Science, Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland, Carnegie Hero Fund, Carnegie Mellon University and the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, among others.
The new interactive site invites you to look, share and enjoy the remarkable story of Andrew Carnegie.
