BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Suzanne Caygill (1911-1994) was a milliner, dress designer and night club singer as a young adult. She turned her attention to color as early as 1940 and worked the rest of her life creating individual color palettes for clients and teaching design seminars. In the 1950s Suzanne Caygill starred in a self-improvement television program, "Living With Suzanne" which aired on CBS in Los Angeles. In 1980 she published Color, The Essence of You and established the Academy of Color. Michaelin Reamy (Watts), Cornell Class 1960, Suzanne's apprentice and professional assistant from 1988 until Ms. Caygill's death in 1994, arranged and coordinated the donation of the Suzanne Caygill Archives to Cornell University.
