$5,400.00

“People who are unable to motivate themselves, must be content with mediocrity”  -Andrew Carnegie

 

Andrew Carnegie was a self-made steel tycoon and one of the wealthiest businessmen in history. 

Born in Scotland November 25, 1835, Andrew Carnegie's first job in 1848 was as a bobbin boy.   At 13 years old his job was to change spools of thread in the cotton mill, 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, for a $1.20 per week.

 

As he got older he began working several jobs for the railroads.  Carnegie started learning how to make investments and many of those, especially those in oil, brought in substantial returns.  By 1889 he started Carnegie Steel Corporation, that revolutionized the Steel Business and was the largest of its kind in the world.  

 

After selling Carnegie Steel in 1901 he began dedicating his time to expanding his philanthropic work, including the establishment of Carnegie-Mellon University in 1904, Carnegie Hall, and numerous libraries.

 

This document dated February 12, 1910, is a typed corespondents between a friend, on Andrew Carnegie’s personal stationary, in which Carnegie acknowledges that he will forward some information over to Mr Roosevelt(Theodore Roosevelt).  At the bottom of the letter, Carnegie has beautifully written in his own, scripted signature in black ink.

Below the document we’ve included one of Andrew Carnegie’s most inspiring quotes.
