"You can’t get very far in life if you don’t get away from Self" - George Washington Carver in 1939
The famed scientist and inventor best known for the amazing work he did with peanuts -- he cooked up over 100 uses for peanuts incluing plastics and gasoline -- gave this rare interview four years before he died in 1943. It's an inspiring story about the importance of scientific discovery and putting ego aside in the search for facts and the truth.
We uncovered this rare tape via the George Washington Carver National Monument. Special thanks to Curtis Gregory at the National Park Service and Peter D. Burchard. Learn more about George Washington Carver here: georgewashingtoncarver.us
