Summary of a letter by Nicholas Murray Butler, made for Frederick P. Keppel by a Carnegie Corporation secretary
Abstract
For many years Carnegie family and friends contemplated the best use for the Carnegie Mansion. Nicholas Murray Butler was the most vocal proponent of turning it into a permanent home for all the New York-based philanthropic organizations connected to Andrew Carnegie. His letters with various proposals to this effect span more than two decades.
