R. Maurice Trimble was born in the Sixth Ward of Allegheny City in 1871, son of builder John H. Trimble. Maurice was educated in Allegheny and then associated with his father in the general contracting business until 1892, when he began the study of architecture with Frederick J. Osterling. He trained with Osterling until 1898, at which time he opened his own architectural office. His work includes commercial buildings, high schools, churches, hospitals, and residences. In later years, he built a house in Ben Avon, where he and his wife raised their family and became involved with the community.
