Although his formal education extended only to Grade 8, his early interest in mechanics and inventions was evident at his first job at the Eastman Dry Plate and Film Company (later Eastman Kodak Company) in Rochester, New York. He invented a stencil machine adopted at the plant and later built a rudimentary camera to study photography.

On March 7, 1898, Curtiss married Lena Pearl Neff, daughter of Guy L. Neff and his wife, in Hammondsport, New York. They had two children together.
