1919 - STEEL KING PASSES AWAY - Andrew Carnegie Succumbs to Bronchial Pneumonia

By Associated Press
Lenox, Mass., Aug. 11 - Andrew Carnegie died today at his summer home of bronchial pneumonia.

Carnegie spent most of the summer here, coming from New York in May and up to a few weeks ago enjoyed fishing trips on the lake which borders his big estate, and riding about the grounds.

He was taken ill Friday and steadily grew worse. His advance aged and lessened powers of resistance hastened the end.

Andrew Carnegie is survived by a widow and one daughter, Margaret, who married Ensign Roswell Miller of New York last April.

Owing to his ill health Carnegie led a secluded life and his withdrawal from public activities gave rise to frequent statements concerning his health.
