Abstract

Dr. George Washington Carver (1864-1943) is known as an agriculturalist, botanist, chemist, and the developer of hundreds of by-products from peanuts. He is also recognized as a painter. However, there are only peripheral mentions of his natural dyestuff developments for textiles from clay, plants, and minerals by scholars (Hersey, 2006; Mackintosh, 1976; McLoone, 1998; & White, 1953).
