Stairs Misshap
by: Stella

George Washington Carver was diagnosed with anemia when he was a little short of 70 years old. Anemia is a disease in the blood where you have a deficiency of either red blood cells or a deficiency of hemoglobin, Anemia leaves their victims weak and weary. Carver probably became dizzy and lost consciousness and fell down his own stairs and bled to death.

Anemia symptoms included, so he might have become dizzy and fell down the stairs. Another symptom is shortness of breath, so he might have lost his breath.

A national hero
by: Beth Mckeehan,daughter of Paul Davenport

He was a great hero of my father's, who was my hero. So you could say he was my double hero. As a child, I constantly heard stories about him. In fact, my youngest brother was named after him, John Carver. When G.W.C. prayed, God answered. He asked God for answers to everything. From 'healing' a sick plant someone brought him, or a sick child, or inventing something totally new from something he found in nature. He was an amazing artist-making his own paint from the clay soils he found in the hills. In spite of all odds against him, George miraculously survived his circumstances, discovered and used his genius abilities to bless and better all of mankind to the glory of God his father. Read 'The Man Who Spoke with the Flowers' by Glenn Clark or many other bios about him.

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.
