Composed by Iowa’s own Dr. Michael Patterson, a Toledo native and South Tama High School graduate. A Dream Fulfilled: The Saga of George Washington Carver is a 50-minute opera that delves into the life of the agricultural pioneer and Iowa hero, focusing on the key events that would shape the destiny of this great scientist. A Dream Fulfilled was created in cooperation with the State Historical Society of Iowa, which provided research assistance.
