The University of North Carolina Herbarium has catalogued over 250 specimens collected by W.D. Seaman.  As our collection continues to be databased, without doubt many more specimens will be found.

Most of the specimens were vouchers for Seaman’s Master of Arts thesis, “A study of the vascular flora of Mecklenburg County, Virginia” which was completed in 1970 under the direction of Dr. A.E. Radford in the Botany Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dr. Seaman was born and raised in Ridgeway, Warren County, North Carolina.  In addition to his M.A. in botany, Seaman has earned a Masters of Divinity from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri and a Doctor of Divinity from Concordia Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  He has taught biology, human anatomy & physiology, physics and computer sciences at the college, high school and junior high school levels.  He served as the pastor of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Hickory, North Carolina for 25 years.  He now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina and is the Mission & Ministry Facilitator for the Southern Region of the Southeastern District of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod.
