Curmode was born on July 11, 1928, and moved with his family to Columbus in 1936. He served in the U.S. Army and was discharged in 1952. In 1955, Curmode married Doris Ann Vaughn and began his career as a fashion designer, establishing "The House of Harold." Curmode believed in the versatility of clothing and became known for his multi-piece, interchangeable outfits. By 1960, he was well-established as a local designer in Columbus, and during the 1970s and early 1980s, he collaborated with several local theatre groups as a costume designer. Curmode died in 1989.
