Andrew Carnegie was a self-made steel tycoon and one of the wealthiest businessmen in history. Born in Scotland November 25, 1835, Andrew Carnegie's first job in 1848 was as a bobbin boy.
As he got older he began working several jobs for the railroads. By 1889 he started Carnegie Steel Corporation, that revolutionized the Steel Business and became the largest of its kind in the world. He began dedicating his time to expanding his philanthropic work, including the establishment of Carnegie-Mellon University in 1904, Carnegie Hall, and numerous libraries.
