George Washington Carver (1864?-1943)

George Washington Carver was a prominent African-American scientist and educator. Carver was born a slave in Missouri but rose to fame as an agriculturalist and role model to African Americans. His main goal was to end the vicious cycle of debt and poverty experienced by black farmers dependent upon sharecropping and cotton. Carver advocated the peanut as a cheap source of protein. In this photo he wears an old coat and a flower in his lapel, his trademarks.
