George Washington Carver,
the Peanut Scientist
GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER made many contributions to our modern-day life. He once worked in Alabama. He was a college teacher, and he taught his students about agriculture. But he was known for his work on peanuts. He made 325 peanut products, my favorite of which is the shampoo. Also, he made 118 sweet potato products. George Washington Carver contributed to our modern almost-2015 life.
