Description

The marriage license and certificate of marriage for Lester Magrath and Hazel Snyder, who were married on July 3, 1943. Magrath was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on June 6, 1921, to Louise and Clifton Magrath. After graduating high school, he enlisted in the United States Army Air Corp. Magrath married his wife, Hazel, in Hillsborough County, Florida, in 1943. Magrath served in the Air Corp until 1972, achieving the rank of Master Sargent. After his service, Magrath retired to Valrico, Florida, where he died on July 18, 1996. Lester Magrath is memorialized in Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
