This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A leader of the Arts and Crafts Movement in Indianapolis, Roda Selleck was also a teacher in the local high school.  She was born in Michigan and studied at Harvard University.

It was Roda Selleck (1842-1924), the University of Michigan graduate, who first inspired a love of drawing in Ada Walter Shulz, another Terre Haute native.  Selleck was a highly influential teacher (chairing the art department at Shortridge High School), leader among the early Indianapolis arts and crafts movement, and successful artist in her own right – exhibiting (alongside Indiana artists T. C. Steele, William Forsyth, J. Ottis Adams, and notable eastern American artists such as W. M. Chase, J. F. Cropsey, C. Hassam, C. W. Eaton and others) in the Sixth and Seventh Annual Exhibitions of the Art Association of Indianapolis (1889 and 1890).
