George Washington Carver

Author Code: AGCA

Born: (?) 1863 - Diamond, Missouri, USA

Died: Jan. 5, 1943 - Tuskegee, Alabama, USA

Carver was born into slavery, thus his exact birth date is unknown, although it preceded emancipation. He was known as Carver's George, referring to his owner, and later changed his name to George Carver adding the Washington much later.He was educated at Minneapolis High School in Kansas, Simpson College in Iowa and Iowa State Agricultural College, where he was its first black student, eventually receiving a master's degree in Botany. In 1896, Booker T. Washington, appointed Carver head of the Agricultural Department at Tuskegee Institute where he was its principal. Carver then administered the Experiment Station farms. After Washington's death in 1915, Carver concentrated on research and experimenting with new uses for peanuts, sweet potatoes, and other crops; a task that lasted until 1923. From 1923 to 1933, Carver toured white Southern colleges for the Commission on Interracial Cooperation. From 1933 until his death, Carver worked on a number of endeavours, which included peanut oil massages, disease surveys and lecturing. He was the best-known black in America during this period. He founded the George Washington Carver Foundation in 1938 for agricultural research, donating his savings of $60,000 (over a $1,000,000 today) to the project. He died following a fall at his home in Tuskegee. Carver's works include Plants as Modified by Man (1894), practical bulletins for farmers and an autobiography, 1897 or Thereabouts.
