Carnegie, Andrew, 1835-1919 (Author), Pritchett, Henry S. (Henry Smith), 1857-1939 (Addressee)
Title:
Typed letter signed to Henry Smith Pritchett
Abstract:
The letter hints at differences in vision that existed between Andrew Carnegie and the CFAT’s first president Henry S. Pritchett. Carnegie saw the Foundation as an agency for payment of retiring allowances. Pritchett, on the other hand, hoped that the Foundation would be “one of the Great Agencies…in standardizing American education” and put higher priority on the educational inquiry activities.
