This is a story of three devout Christians.
In his quest to help feed poor people all over the world George Washington Carver was probably most influential not because he was the “peanut man,” but rather because he was a “gentleman.” His protege Henry Agard Wallace continued Carver’s work as the New Deal Secretary of Agriculture and Vice President of the United States. He was likely one of the most misunderstood leaders of the twentieth century. In turn, Wallace passed the baton to Norman Borlaug, who worked in quiet obscurity until he was the surprise recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970.
Because Carver, Wallace and Borlaug lived, so do we.
