Upon graduation from a segregated high school, he moved to Bremerton, Washington with an older sister and worked in a navy yard as an electrician's helper. In 1945 he was drafted into the Army, and after completing his military service in 1946, enrolled at the University of Washington, earning a B.A. in economics in 1950. In 1951 he received his M.A. and won a Fulbright grant to study in India.

During the Kennedy administration, Dr. Brimmer became assistant secretary of economic affairs in the U.S. Department of Commerce, serving until 1966.

He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1955. He taught history at the University of Pennsylvania from 1957-96 and was the founder of the Philadelphia Center for Early American Studies, now the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, which he directed from 1978-2000. He was elected to the American Philosophical Society in 1998. Dr. Dunn has written extensively on American, Caribbean and European history. Each of his major publications demonstrates his mastery of a different historical genre - Puritans and Yankees (New England family history); Sugar and Slaves (Caribbean social history); The Age of Religious Wars (early modern European political history); (with Mary Maples Dunn) The Papers of William Penn; and The Journal of John Winthrop (documentary editing). His book A Tale of Two Plantations (2015) compares the individual and group experiences of the thousand slaves who lived on a well-documented Jamaican plantation between 1760 and 1830 with the experiences of the thousand slaves who lived on a similarly well-documented Virginia plantation between 1800 and 1865. Dr. Dunn served as Co-Executive Officer of the American Philosophical Society from 2002-2007. In 2008 he received the Heisenberg Medal, awarded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in recognition of his efforts in fostering trans-Atlantic collaborations and dialogues in the humanities and in 2017 he received the American Historical Association's Award for Scholarly Distinction in recognition of lifetime achievement.
