Carl Campbell Brigham was born 4 May 1890 in Marlborough, Massachusetts to Charles Francis Brigham and Ida B. (Campbell) Brigham, the third of four children. His family has roots in the early Massachusetts Bay Colony with ancestors that included Thomas Brigham (1603–1653) and Edmund Rice (1594–1663).

Carl Campbell Brigham was a prime New England specimen, a worthy inheritor of the Nordic intellectual legacy he sought to protect from genetic contamination. "On his mother's side," writes his biographer, Matthew T. Downey, in a celebratory volume published by ETS in 1961, "he was a descendant of William Brewster, the fourth signer of the Mayflower Compact, and of John Goss, who came from England with Governor John Winthrop in 1630." His father's family were Boston Brighams. Young Carl was born into great prosperity. Although he "inherited little of the traditional Yankee reticence," according to Downey, "he did retain throughout his life the poise, bearing, and social graces derived from the environment of an old and esteemed New England family."
