Carver's death
by: Bret

George Washington Carver died in his home at Tuskegee Institute on January 5, 1943 as a result of complications from a fall.

Carver had been diagnosed with pernicious anemia in 1938. Pernicious anemia is a decrease in red blood cells occurring when the intestines cannot properly absorb vitamin B12. In 1938 Carver said "Physically I have been in much worse condition than most people realize." For additional reading about Carver's declining health in the last 5 years of his life, see this section of "George Washington Carver, Scientist and Symbol", by Linda O McMurry, 1981.

Read Carver's obituary in the January 6, 1943 New York Times.
