Rufus Grider, born in Lititz in 1817, lived in Bethlehem for many years of his life. He was a gifted artist who carefully documented his surroundings in numerous watercolors. In 1883 he suddenly moved to Canajoharie, New York. Until his retirement in 1898 he taught art at the Canajoharie Academy. During these years he continued his artistic work until his death in 1900. In this presentation Alice Smith Duncan, who has studied Grider for many years and curated an exhibit of Grider’s work at the Arkell Museum, will discuss his biography and work.
