Background
Louis Curtiss was born in 1865 in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. He studied architecture in Canada at the University of Toronto and in Paris before relocating to Kansas City in 1887. Out of school, Curtiss found work as a draftsman for the architect Adriance Van Brunt and later joined a partnership with Frederick C. Gunn in 1889, which dissolved ten years later. Curtiss then went on to open his own firm in Kansas City, Missouri which he operated until his death in 1924.
