A new exhibition follows the remarkable journey of the young factory boy who used his prodigious gifts to become the most prominent philanthropist of his time. Also available evenings to Stern Auditorium concert patrons.

In preparation for the exhibition, Francesconi spent a year researching, interviewing family members, poring over biographies, and digging through archival documents, vintage photographs, and historical artifacts.

The early poverty. The grueling week journey, by boat, ferry, and barge, that brought him and his family to western Pennsylvania in after his father lost his job in Scotland. To a remarkable degree, Carnegie possessed the ability to make insightful — even visionary — decisions at the critical junctures in his life.

Young Carnegie heard about a well-to-do man who possessed a large library that he made available to working boys. He knocked at the door but was turned away when the man learned that he was but a lowly bobbin boy. Feeling deeply that this was wrong, the year-old Carnegie had the acumen to write a letter to the editor of the local newspaper protesting this iniquity.

The letter must have helped because the wealthy man changed his mind — and Carnegie went on to educate himself in that very library. He had impeccable timing: to be in the right place at the right time and to know what to do with it. Carnegie soon took a job at the telegraph company running messages. His boss recommended that he invest in a forerunner of American Express.

Carnegie had the realization that he could earn money by investing it — rather than subjecting himself to the harsh demands of manual labor. An early investment in railroad sleeper cars earned him his first considerable fortune. Carnegie went on to invest in nearly two dozen companies, and he founded the Keystone Bridge Company, which built the first iron truss bridge across the Mississippi. He purchased iron mills and experimented with the newest technologies for converting iron to steel.

And this was before his forays into steel manufacturing. Having amassed all the wealth he and his family would ever need by his third decade, Carnegie turned his sights to helping others, and helping others help themselves.

The early privations combined with his remarkable instincts developed in him a sensitivity to the needs of others as well as a strong sense of what might best serve the wider community. That year, in , he wrote a letter of intent, a declaration to himself that began to define what would become his philosophy of philanthropy.

The memorandum was discovered after his death, and his wife, Louise, allowed copies to be made for the Library of Congress and The New York Public Library.

Always a voracious reader on a wide variety of topics, Andrew Carnegie began to write, going on to publish dozens of books, pamphlets, and essays on subjects ranging from socialism, international arbitration, and slavery which he opposed , to travel, economics, and peace campaigns. Washington among his friends.

Calling for the abolition of the British monarchy, Carnegie argues that England should follow the American democratic system as a model. In Carnegie published a pair of articles in the Atlantic , which together have come to be known as The Gospel of Wealth.

He wrote:. This, then, is held to be the duty of the man of Wealth: First, to set an example of modest, unostentatious living, shunning display or extravagance; to provide moderately for the legitimate wants of those dependent upon him; and after doing so to consider all surplus revenues which come to him simply as trust funds, which he is called upon to administer … in the manner which, in his judgment, is best calculated to produce the most beneficial results for the community — the man of wealth thus becoming the mere agent and trustee for his poorer brethren.

Books had offered Carnegie escape and enlightenment as a boy. Carnegie the benefactor was quickly becoming Carnegie the celebrity. He was a trailblazing philanthropist. Carnegie was about 20 years down the road about almost everything. One such example was Carnegie Hall itself. At a time when the city was centered around 14th Street, Carnegie looked uptown — to 57th Street. Moreover, while other music halls of the era were built for companies like Steinway or for particular orchestras or impresarios, his was a grander gesture: he built a hall for all of New York City.

And from its opening day on May 5, , to the present, all causes have indeed found Carnegie Hall a welcoming platform, from a Margaret Sanger talk on birth control in to one of the earliest appearances of African American jazz musicians on a concert stage. Nearly 50, events have taken place at Carnegie Hall, more than at any other concert hall in the world. I think Andrew would be happy. He built more than 2, libraries; donated to the schools that eventually merged to become Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh; and established the Hero Fund to award grants to men and women who risked and sometimes lost their lives for others — to name but a few of many causes, initiatives, and institutions he supported.

Carnegie grew increasingly committed to the promotion of world peace in the years preceding World War I: the Peace Palace in The Hague was built thanks to his largesse and he backed an international peace conference held at Carnegie Hall in I declaim any intention of doing so.

Setting the Course for Philanthropy That year, in , he wrote a letter of intent, a declaration to himself that began to define what would become his philosophy of philanthropy. He wrote: This, then, is held to be the duty of the man of Wealth: First, to set an example of modest, unostentatious living, shunning display or extravagance; to provide moderately for the legitimate wants of those dependent upon him; and after doing so to consider all surplus revenues which come to him simply as trust funds, which he is called upon to administer … in the manner which, in his judgment, is best calculated to produce the most beneficial results for the community — the man of wealth thus becoming the mere agent and trustee for his poorer brethren.

Everyday Heroes and Heroines The deadly Pennsylvania Harwick coal mine disaster of January 24, , claimed lives, including those of two rescuers, Selwyn Taylor and Daniel Lyle, whose acts of heroism moved Andrew Carnegie deeply.

But when the San Francisco native entered the lobby, he was sure he was in the wrong place. Francesconi has since become intimately familiar with nearly every nook and cranny of Carnegie Hall. But the position is one that he never would have envisioned for himself when he came to New York with dreams of performing on the stage. After enrolling in a Juilliard class taught by conductor Vincent La Selva, Francesconi applied for a job as an usher at the hall. He was hired and soon became the backstage artist attendant, a position he describes as aggrandized gofer. Francesconi worked backstage for nine seasons while continuing his studies as a conductor.
