520    Christina Vella offers a thorough biography of George 
       Washington Carver, including in-depth details of his 
       relationships with his friends, colleagues, supporters, 
       and those he loved. Despite the exceptional trajectory of 
       his career, Carver was not immune to the racism of the Jim
       Crow era or the privations and hardships of the Great 
       Depression and two world wars. Yet throughout this 
       tumultuous period, his scientific achievements aligned him
       with equally extraordinary friends, including Teddy 
       Roosevelt, Mohandas Gandhi, Henry A. Wallace, and Henry 
       Ford.
