Excerpt from Western Pennsylvania Historical Magazine, Vol. 3 A few months ago Pittsburgh mourned the death of its great philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. Today it is called upon to honor the memory of a man who was at one time associated with Mr. Carnegie, and like his former partner, was a great public benefactor. Henry Clay Frick was born in Western Pennsylvania, and was of the blood of those Germans who with the English Quakers organized the province, and whose descendants with the descendants of the Quakers controlled the destinies of province and state for a hundred and fifty years or more. He first saw the light on a farm; but neither the farm nor the village where he subsequently lived could long retain him. His ambition was boundless; and after being in a few minor employments he became interested in the manufacture of coke and removed to Pittsburgh. Now his rise was spectacular; he acquired coal lands, built coke ovens and in a few years was at the head of the largest coke manufacturing establishment in the United States. He then joined forces with Andrew Carnegie in the manufacture of steel, and the world knows of the phenominal success of the consolidated organization. That Mr. Frick accumulated an immense fortune was the natural consequence. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
