About the Display: This shirt was generously donated to the University of Toledo Chemistry Department by Distinguished UT Graduate Dr. Nina McClelland who personally received the signed shirt from Glenn Seaborg himself! Glenn Seaborg was an American nuclear chemist who won a Nobel Prize for his work in isolating and identifying transuranium (heavier than uranium) metals. The element of Seaborgium was named after him.
