Harry LeMay Bio

Harry LeMay graduated from Cooper Union, and then went on to become a Life Member of the Art Students League of New York.

He was an Art Director/Designer of paperbacks at Dell Books in the fifties.  While there he designed and hung the first AIGA Paperback Book Show, working directly with judges Saul Bass, Herb Lubalin and Elaine Lustig.  Several of his book jacket designs were included in the exhibit.

From Dell Harry moved to Mann Associates as Executive Art Director, in charge of all accounts, including Columbia Record Club, Reader’s Digest and the RCA Victor Record Club.  Among the many different designs he created during that time period were flyers, brochures, ads and promotional pieces. He also designed and supervised production of the three Panorama Books Series – The Art Series, The Travel Series and the Nature and Science Series.  His illustrations for the “Get A Friend” series promoting the Columbia Record Club were very successful in attracting new members.

As an Art Director and Design Associate at Rapid Art Services, Harry worked on many leading accounts, including Life Magazine Promotion, Reader’s Digest Promotion, AT&T, IBM, Good Humor, Dome and Pfizer (package design).

In the mid sixties Harry became Manager of Art and Production at the RCA Victor Record Club, where he supervised work on all corporate advertising and promotion.  While at RCA he initiated Medley Magazine, which had a circulation over 1,000,000.

Harry became Vice President of Marketing and Creative Services for the Capitol Record Club in Hollywood, California.  He was responsible for some $11,000,000 in space advertising, plus all promotion, A&R and product development.  He was Publisher of Keynotes Magazine, with a circulation exceeding 1,400,000.

Harry taught for nineteen years at The High School of Art & Design in New York. 
Subjects included Life Drawing, Illustration, and Advertising Design.  While teaching the Theater Arts Class (Set Design and Stage Lighting) he created the Lighting Design for Folklorico Filipino in their performances at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, and at Carnegie hall.  For seven years he taught Life Drawing and Graphic Design at Los Angeles High School for the Arts.  He also taught Life Drawing at Park La Brea Art Center and Rustic Canyon.

In the area of fine art, Harry has shown in many juried exhibitions, and has had seven One Man Shows, including a 25 year retrospective at the Kenny Gallery in New York featuring more than 320 pieces.
