José Camilo was born Dolores, son of Giuseppe Crotto and Valeria Villas, belonging to a family of French-Italian roots.[5] He received his primary education in his hometown. Later in 1873, Crotto became a pupil at San Jose school, where he completed his secondary education.[6] He obtained his law degree at the University of Buenos Aires in 1888.[7]

José Camilo Crotto was involved in the military civic uprisings, organized by the Civic Union. In 1890, he participated in the Revolution of the Park, and 15 years later in the Revolution of 1905.[8] Between 1909 and 1918, Crotto was president of the Unión Cívica Radical.[9] In 1912, he was elected national senator,[10] and on May 1, 1918 Crotto assumed the government of the province.
