Andrew Carnegie, center, in front of the Peace Palace in The Hague on its opening day in 1913.

It is my privilege to shake hands with those heroes … and to present to them the awards of the Hero Fund, assuring them that the victories of war which involved the death of man sank into insignificance compared with their victory of Peace, saving men at the risk of their own lives.
— From Andrew Carnegie’s address at the May 24, 1910, Annual Meeting of the Peace Society in London
