George Washington Carver:
Inventor and Naturalist
Have you received Christ as your Lord and Saviour?
Plan of Salvation _________________
Live your life for God like George Washington Carver did:
We who are Christians are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians. Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

"Born the son of slaves, he would discover, or improve, countless products that enhance modern life, such as peanut butter, ink, and plastic."
He Didn't Start College Until Age Thirty
"George Washington Carver was sent away from home because no Negroes were allowed to attend local schools. He didn't start college until age thirty because of his skin color. And when he did achieve extraordinary success, he chose not to patent his discoveries or profit from them, instead donating his life savings to continuing research to help mankind.
In George Washington Carver's View, God Had Given Him These Discoveries
Among his achievements was the development of crop rotation, a method that "freed" the south from growing only cotton or tobacco. Because Carver convinced southern farmers to alternate such crops as peanuts, soybeans, and pecans, the south was able to recover from the war years and the loss of slave labor. Countless products that enhance modern life, such as peanut butter, ink, and plastic, were discovered or improved by Carver.
In George Washington Carver's view, God had given him these discoveries...and now he had the privilege of giving them to others."
