George Washington Carver was born near Diamond Grove, Missouri (his exact birthdate is not known). His parents were the slaves of Moses Carver, which is where he received the name, Carver. He was orphaned as a baby–his mother was kidnapped and his father died. He was later exchanged for a racehorse, and by the age of 13-years-old, he was on his own. He learned to read and write, and received a high school education despite tremendous obstacles, and was eventually the first Black student at Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa and later, Iowa State Agricultural College.
