U.S. #953 honors Dr. George Washington Carver and features the same format as the 1940 Famous American Scientists stamps.
George Washington Carver (1864-1943)
This black American scientist achieved international fame for his agricultural research. Carver developed more than 300 products that could be produced from peanuts.  Products invented by Carver include a milk substitute, face powder, printer’s ink, and soap. He created principles of crop rotation that deeply impacted farming in the South. Booker T. Washington appointed him Director of Agriculture at the Tuskegee Institute and he received an honorary doctorate from Iowa’s Simpson College where he was the first black student.
