Autograph Letter Signed: "G.W. Carver" as Director, Research and Experiment Station, 1-1/5p, 8½x11, front and verso. Tuskegee Institute, Alabama, 1932 September 6.The scientist whodeveloped over 300 derivative products from peanuts and 118 from sweet potatoes writes to Mr. Grady Porter of the Tom Huston Peanut Company in Columbia, Georgia. In full: "This is just to extend to you greetings with the hope that you and Mr. Miller are having an excellent time, he is such a prince of a fellow that I am sure you are, because you have so much in common. I thank you so much for bringing him over and staying as long as you did it was such a treat. I feel that we have the propper (sic) forces at work now, in the persons of Dr. Shear and Mr. Miller to get us just where we want in the Peanut Disease Survey. It must be very satisfying to you and Mr. Barry who have worked so untireingly (sic) on this important field crop." Carver letters mentioning his peanut crop are extremely desirable. Folds, one vertical through the "v" in Carver, slightly creased, else fine.
