Educated at Yale University, Brinton then studied medicine at Jefferson Medical College before embarking on European travels. While in Europe, he continued his studies in Paris and Heidelberg. On his return to the USA in 1862, he joined the Union Army and rose to surgeon-in-charge of the US Army General Hospital at Quincy, Illinois by the end of the Civil War.

In 1886, he joined the University of Pennsylvania as professor of American linguistics and archaeology, a position he held until his death.

His many works include Myths of the New World (1868), Guide Book of Florida and the South (1869), Ancient Phonetic Alphabet of Yucatan (1870), Religious Sentiment (1876), American Hero Myths (1882), Ancient Nahuatl Poetry (1887), Language of the Palaeolithic Man (1888), American Race (1891), Negroes (1891), Religions of Primitive Peoples (1897) and Peoples of the Philippines (1898).
