Carnegie Council History
Carnegie Council was founded in New York City in 1914, when Andrew Carnegie assembled a group of leaders in religion, academia, and politics and appointed them trustees of an organization named the Church Peace Union (CPU). Through the CPU, Carnegie hoped to make war obsolete.
