The Richest Man in the World: Andrew Carnegie

Andrew Carnegie, avaricious gilded age capitalist (strikebreaker at Homestead), prolific philanthropist (donator of nearly 3,000 libraries in 33 years), or a combination of both? You can decide at the PBS (Public Broadcasting System) companion site to the American Experience biography of this multi-faceted, complex personality. The site contains a full transcript of the show, a detailed, frames-based timeline covering every year of his life, information about some of the largest mansions of the time, along with a virtual tour of a steel mill, and supplementary information on Carnegie's philanthropy.
