St. Louis, Missouri, August 15, 2014—Front Porch Press, LLC announces the publication release of will d…a life in science on October 17, 2014.

The same strong moral conviction and belief system accompanied him as he testified and negotiated throughout his many years of involvement with the development and ultimate realization of the Chemical Weapons Treaty.

Present for some of the most significant events of our times, Dr. Carpenter interacted with many  notable politicians and leaders of the twentieth century, and was considered a friend by a number of them. In intimate detail, will d…a life in science describes the remarkable career of a man who had a profound influence on agricultural science, had a significant role in the realization of the Nobel Peace winning treaty, and who has failed miserably at retirement.
