George Washington Carver was born into slavery in Diamond, Missouri, around 1864. The exact year and date of his birth are unknown. Carver went on to become one of the most prominent scientists and inventors of his time, as well as a teacher at the Tuskegee Institute. He experimented with the soil and became famous for his work as a botanist/chemist. He used peanuts, sweet potatoes and soy beans to make new products. Before Carver's research, plants were only used for food and clothing. His creative approach to agriculture brought over 300 new products into our lives.
