George Washington Carver was a world-famous chemist who made important agricultural discoveries and inventions.

The popularity of cotton was depleting the soil in many areas and the boll weevil destroyed much of the cotton crop, and planters and farm workers suffered. Carver's work on peanuts was intended to provide an alternative crop and for that he received much acclaim.

Carver was viewed by some as the Leonardo of Agriculture. A monument showing Carver as a boy was the first national memorial erected in honor of an African American. This richly colored poster shares the gift of creativity, ingenuity and purpose with your students.
