In March 1938, Henry Ford visited George Washington Carver at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, as seen in this photo. They had met in person the previous year when Carver visited Dearborn for a conference on "chemurgy," the science of making industrial products from crops. The two were close friends and colleagues and visited each other several additional times before Carver's death in 1943.
