      **1864 July 12- George Washington Carver, African American botanist is born

            in Diamond Grove , Missouri .  He will receive a B.S. from

            the Iowa Agricultural College in 1894 and a M.S. in 1896.

            He will become a member of the faculty of Iowa State

            College of Agriculture and Mechanics in charge of the

            school's bacterial laboratory work in the Systematic Botany

            department.  His work with agricultural products develops

            industrial applications from farm products, called chemurgy

            in technical literature in the early 1900s. His research

            will develop 325 products from peanuts, 108 applications

            for sweet potatoes, and 75 products derived from pecans. He

            will move to Tuskegee , Alabama in 1896 to accept a position

            as an instructor at the Tuskegee Institute of Technology

            and remain on the faculty until he joins the ancestors on

            January 5, 1943.  His work in developing industrial

            applications from agricultural products will derive 118

            products, including a rubber substitute and over 500 dyes

            and pigments from 28 different plants. He will receive the

            Spingarn Medal from the NAACP in 1923. He will be

            responsible for the invention in 1927 of a process for

            producing paints and stains from soybeans, for which three

            separate patents were issued. George Washington Carver will

            be bestowed with an honorary doctorate from Simpson College

            in 1928. He will be made a member of the Royal Society of

            Arts in London , England . Dr. Carver will be honored by U.S.

            President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on July 14, 1943 when

            $30,000 is committed for a national monument to be

            dedicated to his accomplishments. The area of Carver's

            childhood near Diamond Grove , Missouri will be preserved as

            a park, with a bust of the agricultural researcher,

            instructor, and chemical investigator. This park will be

            the first national monument dedicated to an African

            American in the United States . He will be inducted

            posthumously into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in

            1990.

      1987 July 11- Bo Jackson signs a $7.4 million contract to play football

            for the Los Angeles Raiders for five years. Jackson becomes

            a two-sport player as he continues to play baseball with

            the Kansas City Royals.
