C. H. Bunting was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin. He received his B.S. in 1896 from the University of Wisconsin. After serving as a fellow in biology at the University of Wisconsin in 1896-1897, Bunting came to the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine where he earned his M.D. in 1901. He remained at Johns Hopkins Hospital for his internship. He was an assistant in pathology at the University of Pennsylvania from 1902 to 1903. Bunting returned to Baltimore where he joined the Johns Hopkins faculty at the school of medicine and was a pathologist at the Bay View Asylum from 1903 to 1906. He was professor of pathology on the faculty at the University of Virginia from 1906 to 1908. During this time, he married Carlotta M. Swett, a fellow Johns Hopkins medical school classmate. In 1908, he returned to the University of Wisconsin as a professor of pathology. After Bunting's retirement from Wisconsin in 1945, he became a lecturer at the Yale University Medical School in order to be closer to his son Henry Bunting, also a pathologist. He was the author of numerous articles in the fields of pathology, hematology, anemias, and Hodgkin's disease.
