Glackens, L. M. "Philanthropist Andy's latest." Illustration in Puck. 1907 January 30. Caption: His gift of a lake to Princeton suggests other deficiencies of nature which Carnegie may supply. Summary: Illustration shows a scenic postcard view composed of requests from various cities that are seeking landscape features, such as a mountain in Chicago, caves in Philadelphia (where the sun is too bright), a sun in Pittsburgh (where the smog is too thick for the natural sun to penetrate), a river connecting the Gulf of Mexico with the Pacific Ocean, a fountain of beer in Milwaukee, and a "Palm Beach" oasis for the Eskimos, from the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.
