In addition to being a scientist, Carver was an artist. Almost all of his paintings were destroyed in a fire, but one painting that was recovered is on display in the museum as a testament to Carver’s diverse talents.
Carver implemented distance learning before the Internet and television. He designed the Jesup Wagon,
which he would load up with seeds, livestock, plants, tools, and other
products of his work and drive out into the community to teach farmers
about new, more effective agricultural strategies. He shared with them
the value they could get from rotating their crops and from growing
versatile crops like soybeans, sweet potatoes, and peanuts.
