Taze Leonard Senn, known as Tee to his friends, has been a man of hoticulture for the past 50 years. He was born in Newberry with intentions of attending Newberry College, but was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship to Clemson University. His main plans were to major in dairying for most of his family members were dairymen. That decision turned out to be short-lived. A job he attained his first day on the campus atlered his mind. He went to work in the greenhouse of the University's horticulture department. After switching his major in his sophomore year from dairying to horticulture, Senn's interest in his new field continued to grow. After graduating from Clemson University, Senn became a horticulture assistant at Clemson - a research position that got him interested in the research angle of looking at plants and their lives. Tee then went to the Pacific, where he served as Navy communications officer in World War II after his brief teaching position at Clemson. Several years later, Tee returned to the campus and received his master's degree in horticulture physiology from the University of Maryland, while on a Dean's fellowship. He later received his Ph.D. in the same subject there, in 1958. That same year he received a Danforth Teaching Fellowship - the only South Carolinian in agriculture to ever receive one. While on the fellowship he was able to conduct research on controlled atmospheric storage. In which he regulated plants and their growth by manipulating what was given to the plants. This is what got him wondering what could be done to improve the soil. During this same time, Senn met a Norwegian who told him of the growth-promoting properties of seaweed. After realizing that they had stumbled upon an idea that needed to be researched, Tee went to the Science Foundation in Washington, D.C., to ask for a grant to pursue that objective. Tee did indeed achieve that grant and even several more - including one that enabled his to collect seaweed from around the world. Tee has since traveled to the Middle and Far East, Europe, Central and South America and many states within the U.S.A. - giving lectures about seaweed, designing research projects for companies and manufacturers, working on seaweed product development and serving as a consultant for companies negotiating with each other about joint seaweed projects. Dr. T.L. Senn, former Head Professor Emeritus, Department of Horticulture, Clemson University, has been involved in seaweed research for horticulture and agriculture for almost 30 years. Tee has published numerous papers on his research and his research is known all over the world. He is without a doubt one of the leading seaweed researchers in the world. Tee has an impeccable academic background and has written this book in a language easily understood by most gardeners, growers, and farmers. Tee loves life, he loves nature, he loves people and this is reflected in all his actions both in his professional and personal life. He developed a 40-acre garden for the blind at Clemson University. This garden is visited by thousands of visitors every year and is known nationwide. He has also developed programs to employ physically handicapped persons and less fortunate in our society.
