George Washington Carver: George Washington Carver began life as a slave in the tumultuous world of pre–Civil War Missouri. After the war, the orphaned Carver worked as a farmer, a hotel cook, and a laundryman while pursuing an education. As a professor at the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, Carver spearheaded the initiative to cultivate peanuts, soybeans, and sweet potatoes to revive the South’s dismal agricultural economy. Researching the domestic and industrial possibilities of these crops, he invented peanut butter.
