ANDREW CARNEGIE (1815–1919) The railroad and iron and steel baron Andrew Carnegie was the greatest individual benefactor of free public libraries in history. ” He provided vast amounts of money for public libraries, which made books and other reading materials available to countless numbers of middle-class and poor people who otherwise would not have had access to such resources.

Harriet Beech Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin was one of his favorite books. He read it so many times that his mother finally hid it from him, fearing he would damage his eyes. Although he vastly enjoyed the book in childhood, he became quite critical of it as an adult. He then judged the book to be “very bad,” and that its portrayal of black people was “sentimental and dis honest” (Campbell, 63). Among the other works he read as a youth were Robert Louis Stevenson’s prose and poetry. He also enjoyed the rags-to-riches Horatio Alger stories.
