Curtis entered Carver's laboratory in Tuskegee, Alabama in the fall of 1935. Carver was impressed with Curtis' imagination and unflagging drive, and then accepted him as trusted collaborator. Carver admired Curtis for his first experiments with magnolias which he used for the development of several products like perfume oil, water colors, soap and wallboard.
