American, (1873–1955)
Lulu Scott Backus taught ceramics at Rochester Institue of Technology for 34 years, and for a period, served as head of the department when the University was known as the Rochester Athenaeum and Mechanics Institute. Backus exhibited her work widely, and was known for her colorful and experimental glazing techniques. Her affiliation with RIT began when she attended the art and craft teacher training program at the Institute, and completed her postgraduate work with Theodore Hanford Pond, working in jewelry and pottery. Later, she specialized in ceramics and worked under Charles Fergus Binns at Alfred University. She returned to the Rochester Athenaeum and Mechanics Institute and served as director of the Craft and Ceramic Department starting in 1918. She remained at RIT until her retirement in 1952.
