Collection History

This collection was complied by alumni, Dr. Keith Redenbaugh as his principle project for a 1974 class in Environmental Studies. The focus of the collection is the proposed use of Terrace Point Lagoon, later named the Younger Lagoon (for donors Donald and Marion Stowell Younger) by the University. The lagoon is now managed by the University's Institute of Marine Sciences.
Since graduating, Dr. Redenbaugh has been involved with agricultural biotechnology beginning with his research on genetic improvement of American elm. His research efforts include work on a variety of vegetable, forage and forest crops. He is the inventor of synthetic seeds and has been granted numerous patents. Beginning in the 1980s, Dr. Redenbaugh focused his career on regulatory affairs and worldwide efforts to establish science-based regulations. He worked with the FDA and USDA to establish appropriate instruments for safety assessment and oversight of transgenic crops and foods. He obtained regulatory approvals for the first transgenic whole food, the FLAVR SAVR tomato. His efforts also led to FDA issuing a food additive regulation for the kanamycin-resistant marker gene protein, NPTII, a significant decision by the FDA that has consistently been overlooked by both critics and proponents of biotechnology. He also obtained for the FLAVR SAVR tomato what is still the only full commercial approval of a transgenic crop in Mexico. Dr. Redenbaugh spent 1 1/2 years at Iowa State University in the role of Biotechnology Industry Liaison, which involved broad biotechnology interactions with industry and the public, ranging from issues on fermentation, animal health, transgenic animals, as well as plant biotechnology. In this role, Dr. Redenbaugh spent time talking to farmers, students (both high school and college), and community service organizations. Currently, Dr. Redenbaugh is Associate Director, Regulatory Affairs, and Team Leader, Biotechnology Commercialization and Strategic Planning, for Seminis Vegetable Seeds.
