Personal

Born in Newark, NJ, Riggs spent most of his youth living in New York, NY. He moved to Denver, CO, in 1889 to work for the firm of Balcom and Rice, (operated by civil engineer William A. Balcom and architect Eugene R. Rice), coming back to New York City five years later, assisting in the office of W. Wheeler Smith, Architect. He went back to Denver in 1900 to form a partnership with William E. Fisher with whom he worked approximately five years.

Huntington was an accomplished painter, often doing landscapes; he studied with the painter and muralist, Eustace Paul Ziegler (1881-1969), who had moved to Seattle in 1924; Huntington affiliated himself with the Pacific Northwest Academy of Arts and the Seattle Fine Arts Society.
