Color in Design and the Applied Arts, A Selective Annotated Bibliography by Professor Emerita Marian-Ortolf Bagley and Barbara Ann Caron may be viewed online. Professor Marian-Ortolf Bagley was co-advisor, with Professor Eugene Larkin, for Patrick Redmond’s Master of Arts degree program at the University of Minnesota. She is one of Patrick’s mentors. Her mentorship related to design bibliographic citations and reference, for example, has been appreciated. During the 1980’s, various graduate students had provided numerous annotated bibliographic entries for early versions of this project. For example, as a graduate student in the 1980’s, under Professor Marian-Ortolf Bagley’s direction, Patrick had provided preliminary, annotated bibliographic research in the Graphic Design, Advertising, and Packaging categories for what has become "Color in Design and the Applied Arts."
