George Washington Carver worked in agricultural extension at the Tuskegee Institute, in Tuskegee, Alabama, teaching former slaves farming techniques for self-sufficiency. His exact birth day are unknown, yet it is known that it was some time before slavery was abolished in Missouri in January, 1865. To commemorate his life and fabulous inventions, George Washington Carver Recognition Day is celebrated every January 5, on the day Carver died.

To bring education to farmers, Carver designed a mobile school, called a Jesup Wagon after the New York financier, Morris Ketchum Jesup, who provided funding. In 1921, Carver spoke in favor of a peanut tariff before the Ways and Means Committee of the United States House of Representatives. At the time it was unusual for a black person to be called as an expert. Carver's well received testimony earned him national attention, and he became an unofficial spokesman for the peanut industry. Carver wrote 44 practical agricultural bulletins for farmers.
