Born in Wilmington, OH on Oct. 5, 1879, Carl Moon graduated from Wilmington High School, and moved to Albuquerque, NM where he had a photography studio.  He worked there until 1907 when he moved to the Grand Canyon headquarters of Fred Harvey to manage and operate Harvey's art business.

Moon studied painting with visiting artists Thomas Moran, Frank Sauerwein, and Louis Akin.  While in the Southwest he captured many pictures of the Pueblo Indians both on film and canvas.

In 1911 he wed artist Grace Purdie and settled in Pasadena in 1914.  In California he concentrated on landscapes and illustrated several children's books (Wong and the Wise Old Crow, The Flaming Arrow, Painted Moccasin) about India
