​George Washington Carver invented 300 uses for the peanut! Buy Plastic Jars for your Seed and Nut Butters

Posted by

Today marks the beginning of Black History Month, and I noticed the name George Washington Carver kept popping up on Twitter in reference to “the peanut man”.

So, Who is the Peanut man? George Washington Carver, American botanist and inventor, became known as the “Peanut man” although he didn’t invent peanut butter.

George Washington Carter was an American botanist and inventor.

According to an article published by The Huffpost, The History of Peanut Butter , peanut butter actually dates back to the Aztecs, who would mash roasted peanuts into a paste – not quite what we know of peanut butter today.

So why is George Washington Carver known as the “peanut man”? While he didn’t invent peanut butter, he did invent over 300 uses for the peanut! Carver invented ways to use peanuts in recipes, animal feed, colorants, paper and more.

“George Washington Carver, 1864?–1943, American agricultural chemist, b. Diamond, Mo., grad. Iowa State 

College (now Iowa State Univ.; B.S., 1894; M.A. 1896). Born a slave, he later, as a free man, earned his college

degree. In 1896 he joined the staff of Tuskegee Institute as director of the department of agricultural research, 

retaining that post the rest of his life. His work won him international repute. Carver's efforts to improve the 

economy of the South (he dedicated himself especially to bettering the position of African Americans) included 

the teaching of soil improvement and of diversification of crops. He discovered hundreds of uses for the 

peanut, the sweet potato, and the soybean and thus stimulated the culture of these crops. He devised many 

products from cotton waste and extracted blue, purple, and red pigments from local clay. From 1935 he was a

collaborator of the Bureau of Plant Industry. Carver contributed his life savings to a foundation for research at

Tuskegee. In 1953 his birthplace was made a national monument.” Questia.com
