George Washington Carver—The National Agricultural Library’s Newest Digital Exhibit: https://www.nal.usda.gov/exhibits/ipd/carver/

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Agricultural Library (NAL) has launched a new digital exhibit showcasing the bulletins written by George Washington Carver during his time as Director of the Tuskegee Institute (now University) Agricultural Experiment Station. Carver was an agricultural scientist whose importance lies in his practical work supporting African-American farmers and his advocacy for specific crops such as peanuts and sweet potatoes. His work paved the way forward for other African-American scientists and farmers, and American agriculture in general.
