Happy Birthday!

Andrew Carnegie
(Who established nearly every library in the US & many in scotland with his blood money)

was born 11/25/1835
(d.1919)

        Now the troubles down at Homestead
                were brought about this way
        When a grasping corporation
                had the audacity to say:
        "You must all renounce your union
                and forswear your liberty,
        And we'll give you a chance to live
                and die in slavery."

                Homestead Strike; Pete Seeger, Carry It On,

Re: Homestead Strike of 1892; Carnegie Steel locked out 3,800 Amalgamated Assn Iron & Steel workers and finally hired 300 Pinkertons with guns, dynamite and cannon to break the strike. Tally was 10 dead, over 60 wounded. (The workers killed 7 scabs.)

I went to Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, which once featured a Carnegie library (although the building has since been converted to classroom space). I was told it was the first college library in the United States endowed by Carnegie but I don't know if that's true. Anyway, my band-mates and I used to joke that we should have gone and played on the front steps just so we could say we'd played Carnegie Hall. Yuk yuk.

Pete Seeger, I have heard, once remarked that his appearing in Carnegie Hall did not imply approval of Andrew Carnegie or Gus Hall.
