"American botanist George Washington Carver can probably be labelled as the world’s first “chemurgist,” based on his attempts to improve the lot of farmers by encouraging them to grow peanuts. Carver had shown that peanuts could be turned into a host of consumer products, ranging from peanut milk and cooking oil to hand lotions and face creams." http://montrealgazette.com/opinion/columnists/the-right-chemistry-industrial-green-thinking-ahead-of-its-time
