Jacqueline Casey was a graphic designer best known for the posters she created for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Casey was born in 1927 in Quincy, Massachusetts. She studied for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in fashion design and illustration at the Massachusetts College of Art (MassArt). After graduating in 1949, she had a number of jobs, including work in interior design and advertising.
In 1955, she was recruited by fellow MassArt alumna Muriel Cooper to work at the Office of Publications at MIT. In 1972, Casey became Director, taking over this position as her colleague joined the MIT faculty. The two women were among the few working at this professional level at MIT of the time.
