Today In History

‘Dr. George Washington Carver, scientist, botanist, educator, and inventor is believed to have been born on this date January 10, 1864. Dr. Carver discovered over 300 products from peanuts, soybeans and sweet potatoes, which aided nutrition for farm families. He wanted poor farmers to grow alternative crops both as a source of their own food and as a source of other products to improve their quality of life.’
