Product Description

George Washington Carver, a former orphaned slave invented peanut butter and was known as "The Peanut Man." He became famous because of his peanut inventions but he was much more than a peanut magician. From 1896 until his death in 1943 he worked to improve the lives of poor farmers in Alabama and other farms in the south. A professor at the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, he gave speeches to groups of people both white and black, as well as to farmers groups, and came to gain the respect of both white and black people. Booker T. Washington said that Carver was, "a great teacher, a great lecturer, a great inspirerer [sic] of young men and old men."
Unabridged audio CD; approximately 1 hour 49 minutes; 2 CDs.

After the war, the orphaned Carver worked as a farmer, a hotel cook, and a laundryman while pursuing an education. As a professor at the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, Carver spearheaded the initiative to cultivate peanuts, soybeans, and sweet potatoes to revive the South’s dismal agricultural economy. Researching the domestic and industrial possibilities of these crops, he invented peanut butter.
