For many years, Dr. Luther W. Baxter, Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology, maintained this collection, aided by a group of volunteers. Much of Dr. Baxter's research focused on camellia diseases. To reduce root-rot, he taught the volunteers how to graft Camellia japonica onto rootstocks of species with greater resistance to root rot.

Dr. Baxter developed at least two cultivars growing here. The variety 'Beulah Brown Baxter' was named for Dr. Baxter's wife and 'Ruth Lennon' was named for the wife of former Clemson University President, Dr. A. Max Lennon.
