George Washington Carver (1864 - 1943) may have been born a slave and orphaned as an infant, but he went on to become one of our nation's most innovative scientists. Through rich imagery, historical artifacts, audio-visual programs, and hands-on interactives, visitors will discover how Carver went from slave to scholar, his pioneering of natural product development, the work he did to resurrect the soil of the South, why he was the people's scientist, and what his legacy is today.

This exhibition was created by The Field Museum, Chicago, in collaboration with Tuskegee University and the National Park Service.

Presented in St. Louis by Monsanto Fund.
