Summary
Two photographs showing both sides of a medal issued by Fondation Carnegie, the French equivalent of the Carnegie Hero Fund Trust. One side features the portrait of Andrew Carnegie and the inscriptions "Fondation Carnegie, 1909" and "Libéralité d'un citoyen Americain pour recompenser les actes de courage accomplis en France." The other shows an angel placing a crown of laurels on the head of a genuflecting male figure and bears the inscriptions "Aux héros de la civilisation" and "Andrew Carnegie, 1909."
