Edwin Charles Cushman Jr was born in November of 1868 in Rome, Italy. He was the third of five sons of US Consul Edwin Charles Cushman Sr and his wife, American actress Emma Conn Crow. Nicknamed "Carlino" by his mother and her maids, he was christened on 11 January 1869 at the US Consolate in Rome.
Carlino married Alice Clara Muller on 4 March 1890 in St Louis, Missouri. They had a daughter, Violet Cushman.
Carlino left his family to begin study the ethnology and archaeology of southwest Indian tribes in 1893. He was hired as a special agent by the St Louis World's Fair Anthropology Department to study primitive tribes in Mexico. In 1904, he brought a band of Cocopa Indians from Colorado to the Fair.
By July of that year, Carlino, who was suffering from Tuberculosis, relocated to Bay Harbor, Maine, and later to a sanitorium in Saranac, New York. He died, 27 September 1907, aged 38, in Cedarville, Virginia, and was buried at Mt Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
