African American Coins-Issac Scott Hathaway and George Washington Carver Worked Together

Sharing is caring!

An interesting fact:

In 1943,Issac Scott Hathaway sculpted his first bust of George Washington Carver. The original bust stood twelve inches tall. Hathaway and George Washington Carver taught at Tuskegee at the same time, and their friendship developed over Hathaway’s experiments with Alabama clay as a sculpting medium.

How special it must have been for Issac Scott Hathaway to be chosen to design a commemorative coin with George Washington Carver, his friend, on it.
