Edward Huntsman-Trout, landscape architect, was born on July 31, 1889 in Ontario,
Canada. Shortly after his mothers’ death (1892), he moved to the home of his
great-aunt and uncle (the Trout’s) in Toronto. In 1908 the Trout’s moved to Los
Angeles, where Edward finished high school, and later graduated from UC Berkeley
with a degree in Botany in 1913. The following fall, he began his studies at
Harvard’s School of Landscape Architecture, graduating in 1916.
