Andrew Carnegie Captain of industry

Andrew Carnegie started the biggest steel company in the world, and at the time, was one of the richest men in America
Andrew Carnegie's company grew so quickly due to his use of the bessemer process to produce steel at an astonishing rate
Carnegie gave away a very large amount of his fortune to charity, and even a century after his time, his family is still giving away $100 million dollars a year
If it wasn't for Carnegie's steel, we wouldn't have had skyscrapers for many more years, which made cities what they are today
