You are there: Pittsburgh journalist on Carnegie and Rockefeller, the "odd couple" who united 100 years ago to defend their philanthropic practices.

"Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller Sr. were an 'odd couple' when they made a joint appearance to defend their new charitable foundations 100 years ago. The two men made their cases before the U.S. Commission on Industrial Rights in New York City. The independent body, created by Congress in 1912, held dozens of hearings around the country between 1913 and 1915." --  Len Barcousky, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
