Otho was the son of Hugh Laird, a veteran of the Civil War, and Aletta Brooks. He was born in Nashua and educated in the Nashua public schools. He discovered an early interest in art and attended an art school in Minneapolis. He began a career in the field of window decorating, in Minnesota and Iowa.
