‹ Return to Pathbreaker: Charting Andrew Carnegie’s Life and Legacy in the Hall That He Built

Marriage and Music Andrew Carnegie: His Life and Legacy illuminates both the man and the philanthropist. This section of the exhibition focuses on two signal events in the life: Carnegie’s marriage, after a nearly seven-year courtship, to Louise Whitfield, the daughter of a well-to-do New York merchant, on April 22, 1887; and the conception, building, and grand opening of Carnegie Hall, on May 5, 1911.
