In 1942, Henry Ford showed his admiration for his friend and colleague George Washington Carver by naming a Ford Motor Company nutrition laboratory after him. This was appropriate: Carver had dedicated his career to experimental agriculture and to improving farmer nutrition and health as well as crop yields. Though frail, Carver traveled to Dearborn for the dedication. Edsel Ford was also present.
