Exhibit 4

The Polk County Memorial Museum has a new temporary exhibit that is open now through Jan. 26. Called “National George Washington Carver Day: Scientist, Inventor and Educator; Honoring the Father of Modern Agriculture,” the exhibit honors Carver on the anniversary of his death which occurred on Jan. 5, 1943. Born into slavery and emancipated at age 12, Carver sought out an education and dedicated his life to educating students at the Tuskegee Institute. He pioneered crop rotation and salvaged the failing economy of the south. The exhibit includes raw peanuts and soybeans that have been clear coated to reduce dust. Polk County Memorial Museum is located at 514 W. Mill St. in Livingston. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays and the second and fourth Saturdays. Admission is free to all.
