Vogel Paint and Wax was started in 1926 by Andrew Vogel in Orange City, Iowa. He had immigrated from Holland back around 1910 with his parents. His father was also a painter and paper hanger in Holland. When Andrew moved to northwest Iowa he began farming. After not having much success, and realizing that the paints available to him at the time were inferior to those his family had made in Holland, he began to manufacture a red barn paint and a white house paint in his garage.

Approximately 99 percent of all color blind people suffer from red-green color blindness. Statistics reveal that around 75 percent of people suffering from red-green color blindness have problems with green perception, while the remaining 24 percent have problem with red perception. But this doesn't mean that a person suffering from red-green color blindness tends to mix up between red and green colors only. The fact is that the problem prevails in the whole color spectrum. The most common form of color blindness is deuteranomaly, a form of red-green color blindness. Red-green color blindness is a recessive sex linked, and therefore we see that more men are color blind than their female counter parts.
