Description
George Washington Carver was sent away from home at age twelve because Negroes were not allowed to attend local schools. The color of his skin kept him from attending college until he was thirty, and yet he achieved extraordinary success. His method of crop rotation freed southern farmers from growing only cotton and tobacco, enabling the South to recover from the war years and the elimination of slave labor. He discovered or improved countless products that enhance modern life, but chose not to patent his discoveries or profit from them, donating the proceeds to research to help humankind.
