Henry C. Trost was one of the most prolific architects of the American Southwest. His history is closely tied to that of his chosen base of operation, El Paso. Ohio native Trost was strongly influenced by Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as by the Mission Revival style. Using those influences, Trost developed his own architectural style to reflect the southwest climate, designing many early 20th-century El Paso landmarks, including Hotel Cortez, El Paso High School, Paso del Norte Hotel and Bassett Tower. Trost died in 1933. The firm he founded with his brothers continued until the 1950s.
