Philadelphia native Budd Ross graduated from West Philadelphia High School in 1940 before enrolling in Pennsylvania State College. He enlisted in the U.S. Army soon after World War II began, but returned to Penn State to complete a B.S. Arch in 1947.

Ross worked as a draftsman in a number of Philadelphia firms after the war: David Supowitz, Thalheimer & Weitz, George W. Pepper, Jr., and Jack S. Steele. Ross also worked for a period as a staff architect for First Pennsylvania Bank in Philadelphia before establishing an independent practice in the city in 1950. He was still working at the time of his death. Ross joined the national AIA in 1954 and was a member of the Philadelphia Chapter.
