The name "Mellon" is known to Pittsburghers for the bank that makes its home in the city and for the foundation that sponsors cultural events. Now Pittsburghers have an opportunity to learn more about the Mellon family, particularly one key figure...Andrew W. Mellon. British historian David Cannadine is the author of "Mellon: An American Life." The biography looks at the impact that Mellon had on Pittsburgh's history and his national prominence in the early 20th Century. Cannadine spoke with DUQ's Alexandria Chaklos.
