Today in history: April 16

A On this date in 1905, steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie (left) donated $10 million to create the eponymous Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.  It's not really clear whether it helped.  A hundred and four years later, American law schools are still teaching the same way they were in 1905.
