George Washington Carver

American Scientist

Lasting Legacy

In 1943, George W. Carver died at the age of 73 years old. He had severe anemia as a consequence of an accident that he had when he was returning home. Three years before his accident, he decided to donate all his life saving to the Carver Research Foundation at Tuskegee. He wanted that the institution continues with the investigation in agriculture.
After his death, the federal government started to build a monument dedicated to the life of George W. Carver; the monument is located in his birthplace in Diamond Grove, Missouri. This monument is the first dedicated to an African American in all the history of the United States.
