I owe a lot to Scottish-American businessman and philanthropist,
who donated funds to build 2,509 Carnegie libraries, (125 of which were built in Canada, in the early 20th century.
Carnegie’s 1902 $10,000 donation made it possible to open the doors of the Waterloo Public Library on 44 Albert Street, Waterloo on November 1, 1905
Thanks Mr. Carnegie!
The United States National Gallery holds the original of this unattributed portrait of Andrew Carnegie that I’ve remixed to create this image (which is also, of course, in the public domain).
