Charles was the son of Thomas Cooley and Mary Horton.

Charles Horton Cooley (August 17, 1864 – May 7, 1929) was an American sociologist and the son of Thomas M. Cooley. He studied and went on to teach economics and sociology at the University of Michigan, and he was a founding member and the eighth president of the American Sociological Association. He is perhaps best known for his concept of the looking glass self, which is the concept that a person's self grows out of society's interpersonal interactions and the perceptions of others. He would eventually attain the title of president of the American Sociological Society, where he enjoyed the successful publishing of his work. At the end of his life he became very ill, and succumbed to an unidentified form of cancer in 1929.
