The Library World Volume 22 Issue 3 The death of Andrew Carnegie has removed one of the greatest constructive figures in the social economy of the world.

Abstract

The death of Andrew Carnegie has removed one of the greatest constructive figures in the social economy of the world. A man of humble origin, who gained his privileges and power by genius and industry, he recognized the drawbacks from which his youth suffered, and sought to remove them for other people. The making of his wealth was a romance, not always in the most pleasant strain perhaps, but with that we can only be concerned indirectly. What does concern us was that he was the outstanding example of the man of great wealth who returns the money he has won from the community to the community. The library movement in this country and in America owes its greatest impetus to his consistent liberality, and his name and fame are secure.
