New York Carib News: Carnegie Corporation of New York honors 34 great immigrants

New-to-me: a database of great immigrants to the United States. From New York Carib News: Carnegie Corporation of New York honors 34 great immigrants. “The Great Immigrants initiative is intended to increase public awareness of immigration’s role in our country, reflecting the priorities of Andrew Carnegie, a self-made industrialist. In 1911, he established Carnegie Corporation of New York, a grantmaking foundation dedicated to the causes of democracy, education, and international peace. To date, the Corporation has honored more than 600 outstanding immigrants, whose stories can be viewed through the Corporation’s online database, which is among the leading resources of its type.”
