Rufus Grider
Born 1817-Died February 7, 1900
Taught in Canajoharie from 1883-1898.

Mr. Grider documented many buildings which were long gone by interviewing people who remembered the buildings. He was an art teacher and in his spare time created watercolors, pencil, pen and ink sketches of scenes, structures, and objects of historic interest found in the Mohawk Valley, the Schoharie Valley, Cherry Valley, the Adirondacks and New England. Mr Grider left some 2,000 pieces of art work for posterity.
