SS8R: Robber Baron or Captains of Industry Project

posted by .

Create a PowerPoint about your Captains of Industry (min. 7 slides)

I chosen Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and Cornelius Vanderbilt for me previous assignment (that's why I ask you those questions about them).

Now I have to choose ONE OF THEM to do my project.

In my project I have to answer the following questions:

• How did you Captain of Industry make his money
• At its large point, how large was your Captain's business (An example or monetary)
• How did he (or his industry) treat his (its) workers?
• How did he spend his money?
• What kind of humanitarian activities did he participate in? OR, how/where did he donate his money?
• In your opinion, is this person a Captain of Industry or a Robber Baron? Why do you feel this way?

The problem is that one of them could answer 2-3 questions above and some can't. Which person should I choose that could answer all the questions above.

    I think if we look hard enough we can find the answers to all of those questions about all of those men.

    Those are the 3 people I did for my previous assignment and for this project I have to pick one of them.

    I'm having a hard time choosing one of them because I'm looking for one of theme that could answer all of the questions above.

    for starters

    he did participate in activities and he spend his money by donating it to libraries

    That's a good start. I think you'll find that Carnegie participated in other humanitarian activities.
