Early Life and Education
Thomas Bagley was born in Ohio to farming parents. He attended Michigan Agricultural College to learn farming and agricultural technology before working at both the Chicago Tribune and Detroit newspapers.
In 1938, he joined with other educators to form an organization known as essentialism in order to combat some of the more extreme tendencies within Progressive education.
Bagley believed that dominant theories at the time were inadequate and needed to be supplemented or even replaced by an alternative philosophy of professional education. He supported many aspects of this complex movement while criticizing other parts. One significant contribution he made was authoring a book on Gestalt psychology and teaching; unfortunately this theory wasn’t widely adopted at that time.
Bagley is an internationally recognized scholar on international intellectual property law issues such as patents and biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and access to medicines, traditional knowledge protection for indigenous peoples and local communities, technology transfer and technology licensing. She has published many articles and books related to these subjects; most notably she co-edited West Publishing 2013’s new treatise entitled Patent Law in Global Perspective with Okediji and Erstling as editors.
