There is conflicting evidence about his birthplace. His obituary reported he was born in Lawrence, Kansas. Richard Stanwix, a relative, said Beaumont was actually born to the east, closer to nearby Eudora, Kansas. Beaumont gave his birthplace as Lawrence, Kansas when he appeared on the "Do You Want To Be An Actor" radio program in 1937. Family friend Mrs. G. W. Cooper of Vinland confirmed the Beaumont family lived in the 800 block of Kentucky Street, near downtown Lawrence, when Hugh was born. His parents were Ethel Adaline Whitney and Edward H. Beaumont, a traveling salesman whose profession kept the family on the move. After graduating from Baylor School, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, he attended the University of Chattanooga, where he played football. He later studied at the University of Southern California and graduated with a Master of Theology degree in 1946. He married Kathryn Adams Doty in 1942, and the pair had three children. They divorced in 1974.
