Iowa History 101: George Washington Carver in Iowa
April 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Join Linda Griffith Smith as she discusses how Iowa was a turning point in George Washington Carver’s life. Happenstance brought him to Iowa with a here-and-there education, but he was a determined, educated young man when he left for Tuskegee University. The online presentation is part of the “Iowa History 101” series offered by the State Historical Society of Iowa to commemorate Iowa’s 175th year of statehood. The event is free and will be recorded, but registration is required in advance. #Iowa175
