He graduated from Cornell University in 1899 and went on to be a successful engineer. While at Cornell, he was a star athlete in both football and track, for a while holding the school's shot put record. This portrait shows him in a college group photograph, likely a fraternity or club photograph. All individuals in the photograph, including Lueder, are identified below on the mat board. Finely written in black ink are the names of the individuals, identified from left to right as, "Leslie McHara," "Ogden Merrill," "A. B. Lueder," "R. B. Mildon," "Friend P. Williams," "Calvin L.
