Andrew Carnegie: The Richest Man in the World

is an online companion to film documentary on a man who was fond of saying "The man who dies rich, dies disgraced." Carnegie amassed a fortune, then gave it away. Millions of dollars went to support education, a pension plan for teachers, and the cause of world peace. Most famous as a benefactor of libraries, he funded nearly 3,000 around the world. The site has dozens of images and texts dealing with the great industrialist, his contemporary millionaires, and his times. (WGBH, National Endowment for the Humanities)
