Abstract:

Taking readers on a unique journey through the 20th century in the Steel City, Pittsburgh Lives reveals the characters that left indelible marks on the western Pennsylvania city's history. It's not just legendaries such as Andy Warhol, Andrew Carnegie or Roberto Clemente who have defined Pittsburgh. It is also the unknown, personal contributions of individuals who have inspired, stunned and amused us while building up Pittsburgh along the banks of the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio Rivers. Explore the struggles of labor workers, the innovation of authors and artists, the dedication of activists and city officials, and the actions of fellow Pittsburghers whose feats were never recorded by history books until now.
