Carnegie Family Home Convention

 

 

Title:
Carnegie Family Home Convention
Abstract:
The Carnegie family in Pittsburgh on the return of Mr. Andrew Carnegie (front row, third from the left) and Mrs. Louise Whitfield Carnegie (front row, second from the left) from California en route to New York. Pittsburgh witnessed Carnegie's meteoric rise from bobbin boy on a cotton mill, to a telegraph operator then to a railroad manager, and finally to a steel industry titan. Over the years many other members of the extended family settled there as well. Andrew Carnegie moved to New York City in 1867, but Pittsburgh has always remained the site of his steel factories, and the recipient of many Carnegie benefactions.
