Howard Bay was born May 3, 1912 in Centralia, Washington. Both his parents were schoolteachers; his father was an art teacher in particular. Bay's career in set and lighting design began in 1933 and he began working on Broadway productions as early as 1937, He would later be referred to as the "dean of American stage designs".

Howard Bay's set and lighting arrangements were recreated in some 170 Broadway shows in a career spanning over fifty years. Bay won two Tony Awards as a Scenic Designer for his work on Toys in The Attic (1960) and Man of La Mancha (1966). His work also included designs for Carmen Jones (1943), Show Boat (1946), The Would-Be Gentleman (1946), Come Back, Little Sheba (1950), Finian's Rainbow (1955), Pal Joey (1963) and The Music Man (1957). He is remembered for his technique of solving design problems with a practical and realistic approach. Bay designs have been used for operas, films, touring productions, and television productions. He also taught set design at various schools spending most of it at Brandeis University for fourteen years. Bay also contributed articles in his field to various reference books. He was last working on a production of The Music Man to be produced for the Peking Opera House when he died in New York City on November 21, 1986 of a heart attack.
