One spring night four years ago my fiancée and I were at Carnegie Hall, listening to the Emerson String Quartet play Beethoven.
The denouement of her career came on October 25, 1944, when she sold out Carnegie Hall.
It was finally finished in 1908 with money from the Carnegie Foundation.
I'm an Associate Professor of Engineering & Public Policy and Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
Yesterday, I did an interview with Professor Jeremy Michalek of Carnegie Mellon, who has done research into that very question.
It was not accidental, as with Rockefeller, nor incidental, as with Carnegie.
"That Carnegie is a hot sport, all right," he declared warmly.
As each month's output surpassed that which had gone before, Carnegie always came back with the same cry of "More."
"He's a Scot from Scotland, and his name is Carnegie," was the answer.
There was a great deal of praise being bestowed about this time on Mr. Carnegie's library gifts.
