A newspaper story from May explains how he got the job:. Magro, snow white nude drawings Mechanics Institute [now Rochester Institute of Technology] graduate, was notified yesterday of his selection. Snow white nude drawings were nearly 5, applications for 50 animating jobs. The young Rochesterian, whose works have been shown in Memorial Art Gallery and in the Art Center where he lives, stumbled into the opportunity to work for Disney through Herbert M. Stern, Rochester architect. Stern met two Disney representatives on a train coming from California, listened while they described their trouble in finding competent draftsmen, and steered Magro to them for a tryout during Easter week in New York. After the war ended, he launched a short-lived animation studio in New York, Minitoons, with former Disney colleagues Bob Leffingwell and Wilbur Streech.
