Transforming Teachers - Peanuts

  • Carver goes to Washington

    Booker T Washington invited Carver to Tuskegee:

    I cannot offer you money, position or fame. The first two you have. The last, from the place you now occupy, you will no doubt achieve. These things I now ask you to give up.
  • George Washington Carver

    The accomplishments of Dr. George Washington Carver in the field of botany-chemistry are legendary, having developed 300 products from the peanut, and 118 from the sweet potato. The products Carver invented include printers ink, shaving cream, plastics, adhesives and much more.

    But Carver only owned three patents on his many creations. Why? Because he didn't feel it was right to take money for something God gave him.
