McRay Magleby, Jr. graduated from Brigham Young University in 1969 with a bachelor’s degree in art. He then served as creative designer of BYU Publications & Graphics (now called BYU Graphics) until 1996. In 1987 BYU awarded him with the Honorary Alumni Award.
Along with teaching at both the University of Utah and BYU, Magleby was commissioned for several historic events. He created the first Cultural Olympiad poster for the 2002 Olympics and he also designed a carving for the Governor’s Mansion for the 100th anniversary of Utah.
