George Washington Carver
Died in Tuskegee Alabama
January 5, 1943


A life that stood out as a gospel of
self-forgetting service.
He could have added fortune to fame
but caring for neither he found happi-
ness and honor in being helpful to
the world.

The centre of his world was the South
where he was born in slavery some
79 years ago and where he did his
work as a creative scientist.
