I know Black History Month is over, but this morning I’m fascinated by George Washington Carver. Born into slavery, he relentlessly pursued an education to postgrad level. Became part of the teaching faculty at Booker T. Washington’s new Tuskegee University where he researched botany. Carver devoted himself to farm reform, promoting crops other than cotton (like peanuts) to develop agricultural resilience in the South. Carver and Henry Ford were buddies apparently.
What is this about?
This is my attic blog. It's an archive of old blog entries and posts on various blogs and blog-like things. When I close a project down, it goes here. This may move, the links aren't permanent, but if you're interested in reading stuff I've written over the years – go nuts!
CAUTION: it's about as well sorted as you'd expect an attic to be.
