"My work, my life, must be in the spirit of a little child seeking only to know the truth and follow it."

A man of many visions......George Washington Carver was born a slave in 1860. He earned his Masters Degree from the Iowa State Agricultural College. Using his knowledge and nature, he discovered peanuts and sweet potatoes as prime ingredients for fertilizing the soil. His research led him to develop more than 300 items using peanuts, 108 uses for sweet potatoes, and 75 uses for pecans. George Washington Carver died in 1943, leaving a legacy of accomplishments as an educator, scientist, businessman, service industry employee, agriculturist, author, lecturer, domestic reformer and performing artist.
From the depths of our minds and our hearts, we should always remember and reflect. Many thanks to George Washington Carver, the man with many visions.
