Born Ernest Evan Thompson in England in 1860, Ernest Thompson Seton began a life of world traveling in 1866, when the young boy moved with his family to Lindsay, Ontario, Canada. By 1870, the family relocated to Toronto, and Seton attended schools there. Always interested in art, he won artistic contests before he was eighteen years old; by nineteen, Seton had won a scholarship to attend the Royal Academy in England for a period of seven years. It was around this time, he officially changed his name in an assertion of independence.
