Clayton Albright was an American magician, musician and renowned magic collector.

Highly regarded for his in-depth knowledge of the history of magic apparatus, his collection of magic props and posters included many important items used by Houdini, Thurston, Kellar and Herrmann in their shows. His vast collection was exhibited in a full floor of his home, and was always open to view by fellow magicians.

He was also famous for his unique sense of humor. A close friend of Peter Monticup, owner of MagicTricks.com, Clayton was a generous mentor, always encouraging and sharing performance tips and tricks.

Clayton created a show called "Magic Circus" which he performed frequently for more than 30 years. The show was a featured attraction at the 1964 New York World's Fair, where it was televised live from the RCA Building.

Clayton was also one of the first magicians to portray the Ronald McDonald character in live appearances.

Clayton was the nephew of Howard Albright.
