Among George Washington Carver's scientific contributions were the bulletins he issued from the Experiment Station of the Alabama state extension service that he established at the Tuskegee Institute. Carver wrote what he called "threefold" agricultural bulletins, with information for farmers, teachers, and housewives. This bulletin taught readers that cow peas were good for depleted soils as well as good to eat.
