Caption: Portrait of George Washington Carver painted in 1942 by Betsy G. Reyneau. Carver (1864 - 1943) is known for his research into and promotion of alternative crops to cotton, such as peanuts and sweet potatoes, in the Reconstruction South (when the agricultural monoculture of cotton had depleted the soil and the boll weevil was destroying the crop).
