“Andrew Carnegie was regarded in his day not just as a robber baron but--after the Homestead Strike of 1892, in which hired guards killed seven striking steelworkers--as a plutocrat with blood on his hands. He reshaped his image by giving away most of his fortune during his lifetime, and today he is remembered less for the strike than for his phrase 'the man who dies...rich dies disgraced.'”
Andy Serwer, Jeanne Lee 
Together with John D. Rockefeller, Carnegie was a major backer of schools in USA.
