Calvin R. Thornton was born in Dexter, Iowa on February 16, 1859. He moved to La Grande, Oregon, in 1886 where he practiced as an architect until his death in 1909. He designed many buildings in La Grande subsequent to a fire that took place in 1886. He died on December 16, 1909, three days after suffering injuries from a fall while working on the Litch Buidling in Enterprise, Oregon. Source: Architects of Oregon (Lair Hill Publishing, 2002).
