This Collection

Andrew Carnegie was born in Dunfermline, Scotland in 1835 and, although he left for the United States before the age of thirteen, he still remembered his place of birth with a great deal of fondness throughout his life. After making his fortune, he donated the Carnegie library and public swimming baths and set up the Carnegie DunfermlineTrust with an endowment of $2.5 million. Part of the Trust's work in Dunfermline included the establishment of a Music Institution.
