Tycoon in der Stahlbranche, 1835-1919

Rockefeller und Cornelius Vanderbilt war er der drittreichste Bürger der USA. Getreu seinem Credo „Der Mann, der reich stirbt, stirbt in Schande“ gründete er zahlreiche Stiftungen, die in unterschiedlichsten Bereichen tätig waren und tlw. noch sind, mehrere Bibliotheken sowie eine Universität und finanzierte den Bau der Carnegie Hall, die sich als eines der weltweit bedeutendsten Konzerthäuser etablierte.

To Elizabeth Rutherfurd Stuyvesant, expressing doubts about the management of an humanitarian effort and declaring that peace is certain. "[…] The end aim[e]d at is noble, but like all such movements, everything depends upon the management. […] I think there would be great risk of failure and the last stage of these poor unfortunates would be worse than the first. In the nature of the case, the interruption of their work at home is but temporary. This awful war cannot last. Peaceful settlement is certain."
