Excerpt from Memorial Service in Honor of Andrew Carnegie on His Birthday Tuesday, November 25, 1919
The program has been prepared al'ler conference with Mrs. Carnegie in regard to all of its numbers. The tirst and last organ numbers have been chosen because they were Mr. Carnegie's special t'avorites. They were played nearly every day on the great organ at Skibo Castle when he was there, and on the organ in his home in New York when he was there. The Recessional was suggested by Mr. Robert Garland, a member of the Committee on Arrangements. The two songs, the words of which appear on the third page of the program, while not familiar to Mrs. Car negie, greatly pleased her by their sentiments. So we are all here with this understanding of the occasion, and are now prepared to enter upon it in that spirit.
