George Washington Carver
By: Dylan Tadas
At twelve, he moved to Newton County in southwest Missouri, where he studied in a one-room school house. Later on, he went to Minneapolis High School in Kansas. At the age of thirty, Carver became the first black student in Simpson College Indianola, Iowa.
George W. Carver was born in 1864 near Diamond Grove, Missouri. He was born during a turning time when the civil war was ending. When he was young he found an interest for nature and earned the nickname "The Plant Doctor."
In 1897, Booker T. Washington convinced Carver to be the Director of Agriculture in the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute for Negroes. At Tuskegee, Carver develpoed his crop rotation method, which revolutionized southern agriculture. He educated farmers to alternate the soil-depleted cotton crops with soil enriched crops such as peanuts, peas, soybeans, sweet potatoes, and peacans.
In 1923, he recieved his first Spingarn Medal. He recieved that every year after.
In 1939 he recieved the Roosevelt medal. He died on January 5, 1943 at the age of 78.
