Established by Andrew Carnegie in 1911, with large grants especially to form the education sector. Lots of grants to "security" think tanks too.

Not to be confused with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

The Carnegie Corporation of New York is a "philanthropic" fund established by Andrew Carnegie in 1911 at the suggestion of Elihu Root, to support education programs across the United States, and later the world.[1] It also funds a large number of "security" think tanks.

Flexner report

The Flexner Report is a landmark report of medical education in the United States and Canada, written by Abraham Flexner and published in 1910 under the aegis of the Carnegie Foundation, leading to the takeover of the medical system by John D. Rockefeller. Many aspects of the present-day American medical profession stem from the Flexner Report and the following legislation.

The report called for the standardization of medical education, whereby only the monopoly AMA would be allowed to grant medical school licensure in the U.S., and to the stress on drugs, radiation, or surgery (allopathic medicine).[2]

With new laws in place, Rockefeller teamed up with Andrew Carnegie and started funding medical schools all over America on the strict condition that they only taught allopathic medicine. Through the power of their huge "grants", this powerful team systematically dismantled the previous curricula of these medical schools, removing any mention of the healing power of herbs or natural treatments. Teachings on diet and other natural (non-drug) treatments were also completely removed from medical programs.[2][3]
