Arthur A. Hamerschlag, the first president of the Carnegie Technical Schools, was appointed with input from Andrew Carnegie himself.
In November 1903 - two years before classes began - a committee from the school visited Carnegie's home in New York City and mentioned Hamerschlag, already a prominent organizer in multiple New York-area trade schools. With his practical background and a developing close relationship to Andrew Carnegie, Hamerschlag focused his tenure on constructing the school's physical presence and getting periodic infusions of money from its founder. "Since [campus architect Henry] Hornbostel maintained his offices in New York, day-to-day supervision of the building projects in Pittsburgh often fell to Hamerschlag, who may have devoted half his time to campus construction," professor emeritus of history Edwin Fenton wrote in his 2000 book Carnegie Mellon 1900-2000: A Centennial History. As the Carnegie Technical Schools evolved into the Carnegie Institute of Technology - and control of the institute passed to a New York-based corporation after Andrew Carnegie's death - Hamerschlag felt increasingly left out, according to biographers.
