Andrew Carnegie

Today's picture was taken in 1906, and it shows a group photo with Andrew Carnegie, who is the small man seated in the front row. Andrew Carnegie was one of the richest men of all time. Glancing at the photo, do you recognize anyone else in the picture?

  1. Tomorrow evening I go to The Hague to visit my uncle’s birthday party. He lives one block away from the so called Peace Palace, where a.o. the International Court of Justice is located. The construction of this building was funded by Andrew Carnegie (he donated 1.5 million dollar).

  5. Is that Dr. George Washington Carver, standing, extreme left, behind the lady in the voluminous white dress?

  6. Andrew Carnegie had a reputation for being a hard driving businessman. But in his later years he donated to a lot of great causes and for that America should always be grateful.

  7. I believe that very tall man in the very back may be Matthew Henson, polar exporer and local-man-makes-good from Baltimore.

  9. Lady Anne: The date of the picture is 1906, when Peary and Henson were on the second attempt to reach the North Pole, so Henson was not in this photo taken at Tuskegee Institute.

    The front row is Dr. Booker T. Washington and his wife at Tuskegee Institute, with some of his visiting faculty members: Robert C. Ogden (front row, far left) and Andrew Carnegie (front row, center). Can anyone identify the man on the far right?
