Ernest Jus – black inventors

 

Ernest Just is one of the black inventors who were born in 1883 in South Carolina. His mother was a teacher and his dad worked in dock work. However, when Ernest was four years old his dad passed away leaving him having to work in the fields every single day to help his mother provide. Ernest, however, went to school in the northern states because during his time the southern schools were not known for having the best education available. So, Ernest worked extra hard and eventually he had saved up enough money for himself to be able to go to school at Kimball Academy where he more than proved that he had what it took to be a model student. Furthermore, Ernest Just was able to complete his four year degree program in three years while being the editor of the school newspaper and the President of the debate team. Not to mention the fact that he even graduated as the class valedictorian.

In 1903, Ernest Just decided to expand his education even more. In 1907 he graduated from Dartmouth College yet again as Valedictorian and as a research biologist with a minor in cytology. Not to mention the fact that he was also the only student in his class that was able to graduate with the title Magna Cum Laude.

 

 

In 1907, Ernest went on to work for Howard University. While managing multiple job titles here Ernest was still able to graduate in 1916 with his PhD in Zoology. Not to mention the fact that by the time he was 32 he was awarded the 1st Springarn Medal. For the proceeding 20 years Ernest performed different studies on marine animals in regards to their skin cells. He did this because he had a dream of finding out the cures to certain types of diseases among humans such as sickle cell anemia and cancer.

When Ernest Just died in 1941 he not only left behind his wife and children. But, he also left behind the memory of one of the best zoologist of his time period.
