The Carnegie American Benefactions in Operation. Front cover
Abstract:
This booklet was written by Dr. John Ross, the head of the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust, established in 1903, for the betterment of social conditions in Carnegie's native town. Dr. John Ross also was in charge of the Carnegie Hero Fund Trust, established in 1908, for recognition of heroic acts performed in peaceful walks of life in Great Britain and Ireland. The Hero Fund was modeled after the Carnegie Hero Fund Commission, established in the United States in 1904, and was soon followed by Carnegie Hero Funds in France, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, and Italy.
