One-Day Seminar: “Captains of Industry or Robber Barons?” hosted by Heinz History Center (Pittsburgh, PA)

August 14 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Revisit the Gilded Age, or Age of Enterprise as some call it and read about the ideas, actions, and legacies of the leading political and industrial figures of the times, exploring the question of whether these people are properly portrayed as either ‘Robber Barons’ or Captains of Industry’ – or perhaps, something of both.

Lunch will be provided at this free program, as well as a certificate for continuing education. All registrants will receive a copy of the reader, on paper, in advance of the program; and digital copies will be available here after early July 2020. Click here to register.
