Charles Schwab was a very famous steel baron. He started as unlearned worker and was 20 years later president of Carnegie steel. Later Schwab was the first president of U.S. Steel and the founder of Bethlehem Steel. The famous steel company was formed in 1901 when Andrew Carnegie brought his steel company into the new company. This was formed by J. P. Morgan. Henry Phipps (1839-1930) was an American entrepreneur and major philanthropist. Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919) was Chairman of the Carnegie Steel Company and played a major role in the formation of the giant United States Steel Corporation. Frick also financed the construction of the Pennsylvania Railroad and the Reading Railroad. Industrialist and steel magnate Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) was born in Dunfermline (Scotland) as the son of a weaver. In 1848 he emigrated to Pennsylvania with his parents. At age 13 Carnegie already started to work as a winder in a cotton spinnery. A year later he switched to a telegraph post in Pittsburgh and learned how to cable. Here he was discovered by the head of the Western Division, Thomas A. Scott. After several years of apprenticeship with the Pennsylvania RR, in 1865 Carnegie turned towards the steel industry which was expanding at an explosive rate. In 1901 he sold his steel corporation at an enormous profit to John P. Morgan, who converted the company into the steel trust U.S. Steel. After this deal Carnegie retired completely from business, became a writer and devoted himself to his philanthropic foundation. Next to Rockefeller, Astor, Vanderbilt and Morgan, Carnegie was considered one of the Big Five in American economic history.
Charles Schwab war ein berühmter Stahlmagnat. Er schaffte es in 20 Jahren vom ungelernten Arbeiter bis zum Präsidenten von Carnegie Steel. Später wurde Schwab zum ersten Präsidenten von U.S. Steel und zum Gründer von Bethlehem Steel. Der gigantische Stahlkonzern United States Steel entstand im Jahr 1901. Andrew Carnegie brachte sein Stahlunternehmen in den Konzern ein und J. P. Morgan formte daraus United States Steel. Henry Phipps (1839-1930) war ein amerikanischer Unternehmer und Philantroph. Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919) war Chairman der Carnegie Steel Company und spielte eine wichtige Rolle bei der Gründung der United States Steel Corporation. Frick finanzierte zudem den Bau der Pennsylvania Railroad und der Reading Railroad. Der Industrielle und Stahlmagnat Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) wurde in Dunfermline (Schottland) als Sohn eines Webers geboren. 1848 wanderte er zusammen mit seinen Eltern nach Pennsylvania aus. Bereits mit 13 Jahren begann Carnegie als Spuler in einer Baumwollspinnerei zu arbeiten. Ein Jahr später wechselte er zu einem Telegraphenamt in Pittsburgh und lernte dort das Telegraphieren. Dort wurde er vom Leiter der Western Division, Thomas A. Scott entdeckt. Nach Lehrjahren bei der Pennsylvania RR wandte sich Carnegie 1865 der explosionsartig wachsenden Stahlindustrie zu. 1901 verkaufte er seinen Stahlkonzern mit riesigem Gewinn an John P. Morgan, der die Firma in den Stahltrust U.S. Steel umwandelte. Nach diesem Deal zog sich Carnegie völlig aus dem Geschäftsleben zurück, betätigte sich als Schriftsteller und widmete sich seiner philanthropischen Stiftung. Carnegie galt neben Rockefeller, Astor, Vanderbilt und Morgen als einer der Big Five der amerikanischen Wirtschaftsgeschichte.
