CARL SEMENCIC was born in New York City and he lived within walking distance of the city line for 70 years at, which point he sold his house and moved to the Valley of Arizona. He is the product of the NYC public education system and he holds a Associates Degree in Liberal Arts from Queensborough Community College, a B.A. in British and American Literature from Queens College, and a Master’s Degree and Doctorate in anthropology from State University of New York at Stony Brook where his areas of special interest were the archaeology of the Americas and American Indian studies. He also holds an Advanced Certificate which he received “With Distinction” from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust and he was employed in the luxury wine industry for 40 years. He’s known to have a seriously educated wine palate. Semencic is best known for his magazine articles and books about rare breeds of dogs. He wrote three books about dogs using his own name and two more using false names when the mail became impossible for him to deal with. Many of the breeds he wrote about were on the verge of extinction when he began to popularize them in his writing and some are now registered with the American Kennel Club. Dr. Semencic is a life member of the National Rifle Association and an avid outdoorsman. He enjoys fishing, especially fresh water with ultra-lite equipment, hunting, but only with traditional muzzleloaders, kayaking, especially in the Great Okefenokee Swamp but also locally, hiking and he is a very avid Japanese, Top Division, Sumo Wrestling enthusiast. He has traveled the world both on business and for pleasure. He is also a member of the American Mensa Society. Semencic distrusts government and describes himself as a Conservative, “closed-borders” Libertarian. He’s been married to his wife, Barbara since 1979 and they have raised two sons to adulthood. Of all the places he’s been, he says that perhaps his all time favorite place is his own 550 sq foot patio which overlooks the Sonoran Desert where he enjoys feeding the local birds and watching the desert wildlife roam past; Javelinas, Bobcats, Coyotes, and a wide variety of snakes and lizards. If he can’t be on his patio, his second choice for relaxation is Queenstown, New Zealand.
