Meet the Author

Spencer L. Seager is Professor of Chemistry at Weber State University, where he served as chemistry department chairman from 1969 until 1993. He teaches general and physical chemistry at the university and is also active in projects to help improve chemistry and other science education in local elementary schools. He received his B.S. in chemistry and Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Utah.

Michael R. Slabaugh is Professor of Chemistry at Weber State University, where he teaches the year-long sequence of General, Organic, and Biochemistry. He received his B.S. in chemistry from Purdue and his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Iowa State University. His interest in plant alkaloids led to a year of postdoctoral study in biochemistry at Texas A & M. His current professional interests are chemistry education and community involvement in science activities, particularly the State Science and Engineering Fair in Utah.
