Carver’s story of self-determination and triumph over adversity inspired millions. A child prodigy, he was orphaned in his youth but showed an extraordinary talent for the science of plants and flowers. Through grit and determination, he worked his way through Iowa State University, where he studied botany, and went on to conduct research at Tuskegee University for decades. He traveled the world as an ambassador of botany, agriculture and racial harmony. A deeply religious man, he won the admiration of Presidents Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt, business titan Henry Ford, and royal families across Europe with his unique combination of spirituality and science.
