    Biographical / Historical

    Clifford Ulp was born in 1885 in Olean, New York. He attended Rochester’s East High School and graduated from the Mechanics Institute (a precursor to RIT) in 1908. Five years later he returned to RIT to teach illustration and drawing. Ulp remained at RIT for 39 years, serving as the head of the Art and Design department from 1920 until his retirement in 1952. Ulp is remembered primarily for his landscapes. He was a popular public speaker and well-known figure in Rochester in the 1920s and early 1930s, during which time he served as president of the Rochester Art Club.

    Clifford Ulp died at age 72 in 1958. Later that year, he was posthumously awarded the RIT Outstanding Alumni award.
