    So the history books aren't revised with a "Carnegie free library" in every
    town, Carnegie hall in New York city either.
    Rotten & nasty is just that, and it should stand.
    I agree; that was the point of my post. It can be quite jarring when you see something historical and interesting/pleasant, and then you see the darker side nearby.

    Henry Ford was a nasty man.

    Not much changes in the last 100 years. Currently for many prospective employees, the employer's investigation into the private life is quite easy. Just a brief look at the prospective (or current) employee's social media pages.

    As far as business owners being mean to brutal, that was society as a whole. Slavery in the USA was less than 50 years past. Hunger and malnutrition was the underlying cause of most deaths. Cities would arrest vagrants and sub them out for hard labor.
