Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919). He entered the Carnegie Steel Company in 1882. He became chairman and a rival to Carnegie himself. Stridently anti-labor, he was widely reviled. On July 22, 1892, anarchist Alexander Berkman marched into Frick's private office, shot him point blank three times, and stabbed him with a poisoned knife, failing to kill him. This provoked much fear and trembling amongst robber barons of the time.
