Andrew Carnegie was born on November 25, 1835, in Dunfermline, Scotland. After moving to the United States, he worked a series of railroad jobs. By 1889 he owned Carnegie Steel Corporation, the largest of its kind in the world.

In 1901, Carnegie made a dramatic change in his life. He sold his business to the United States Steel Corporation, started by legendary financier J.P. Morgan. The sale earned him more than $200 million. At the age of 65, Carnegie decided to spend the rest of his days helping others. While he had begun his philanthropic work years earlier by building libraries and making donations, Carnegie expanded his efforts in the early 20th century.

John D. Rockefeller, founder of the Standard Oil Company, became one of the world’s wealthiest men and a major philanthropist. In 1870, he established Standard Oil, which by the early 1880s controlled some 90% of U.S. refineries and pipelines.

Critics accused Rockefeller of engaging in unethical practices, such as predatory pricing and colluding with railroads to eliminate his competitors, in order to gain a monopoly in the industry. In 1911, the U.S. Supreme Court found Standard Oil in violation of anti-trust laws and ordered it to dissolve.

Rockefeller retired from day-to-day business operations of Standard Oil in the mid-1890s. Inspired in part by fellow tycoon Andrew Carnegie, Rockefeller donated more than half a billion dollars to various educational, religious and scientific causes.

Cornelius Vanderbilt, also known informally as "Commodore Vanderbilt", was an American business magnate and philanthropist who built his wealth in railroads and shipping. Born poor and with but a mediocre education, his luck, perseverance and intelligence led into leadership positions in the inland water trade, and the rapidly growing railroad industry.

Vanderbilt began a passenger ferry business in NY harbor with 1 boat, then started his own steamship company, eventually controlling Hudson River traffic. He also provided the first rail service between New York and Chicago. His success in business was often credited to his ability to work harder and more ruthlessly than any of his competitors.

He is best known for building the New York Central Railroad. Vanderbilt is deemed one of America's leading businessmen, and is credited for helping to shape the present-day United States. His sprawling businesses were essentially prototypes of modern corporations. When Vanderbilt died in 1877, his fortune was estimated to be in excess of $100 million.
