Sponsor Spotlight: Carnegie Corporation of New York


The National Academies has a long, storied history with the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Andrew Carnegie and the Corporation were instrumental in securing funds for the building of the NationalAcademies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine building, located on Constitution Avenue in Washington, DC. George Ellery Hale (NAS, 1902), a distinguished solar physicist and Professor of Astronomy at the University of Chicago, was an energetic institution builder who persisted in trying to interest Carnegie in the building project. With the assistance of Elihu Root, a Carnegie Corporation trustee, the Board of Trustees of the Carnegie Corporation of New York adopted a resolution that would provide $5 million in total for building construction and an endowment for the NAS.

The National Academies proudly continues our partnership with the Carnegie Corporation today.
