Cameron Booth was born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1892 and was a student at the Art Students League of Chicago and studied with luminaries such as Hans Hoffman in Munich. He attended the Armory Show of 1913 in Chicago where he was first introduced to the avant-garde artworks of European and American artists. He served in World War I which took him to France where he was able to meet Fernand Leger, Georges Roualt, and Kees van Dongen. During this time, Booth was able to study Cubism and abstraction which had a strong influence on his art for the rest of his career.
Cameron Booth taught at the Art Students League of New York City, Minneapolis School of Art, which later became the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and the University of Minnesota where he taught James Rosenquist. His style began with Post-Impressionism and he also incorporated Social Realist paintings of farming and mining towns throughout Minnesota. Later in his life, his artworks were more gestural and Abstract Expressionist in style.
