Scottish-American industrialist who consolidated his steel industries in 1899. Two years later, he merged two corporations together to form the greatest corporation the world had ever known, U.S. Steel Co. As a philanthropist, his gifts to civic organizations were estimated at $350 million over his lifetime.
Carnegie emigrated to the U.S. at 13 where he worked as a bobbin boy, telegrapher, investor, and finally, a steel magnate. He married once and had one daughter.
In the fall of 1916 the Carnegies bought a mansion, Shadowbrook, near Lenox, Massachusetts, and his failing health improved there, until he died at 7:10 AM on 11 August 1919 from bronchial pneumonia, aged 83.
