Andrew Carnegie: American Experience

DAILY SCHEDULE | PROGRAMS A-Z

Andrew Carnegie's life embodied the American dream: the immigrant who went from rags to riches, the self-made man who became a captain of industry, the king of steel. He preached the obligation of the wealthy to return their money to the societies where they made it -- then added, says Carnegie's biographer, Joseph Frazier Wall, "a very revealing sentence. He wrote, 'and besides, it provides a refuge from self-questioning.'" Produced by Austin Hoyt. David Ogden Stiers narrates.
