National Archives Comes Alive! Young Learners Program: Meet George Washington Carver

National Archives Museum

Thursday, February 15, 2024 - 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

George Washington Carver was a noted American agricultural scientist, educator, and inventor. Carver was often referred to as “The Peanut Man.” He developed hundreds of products using peanuts, sweet potatoes, and soybeans, revolutionizing the science behind planting and farming. He taught for many years about his work at the Tuskegee Institute. For his many contributions, his birthplace site was designated a national monument—the first person other than a U.S. President given the distinction. George Washington Carver is portrayed by Keith Henley of American Historical Theatre.

Programs and the Black History Featured Document Display are made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Verizon.
