He was born on January 8, 1899 in Jonesville, Indiana to Margaret Hannah Marquette and William Cecil Corum.

During the 1924 Indianapolis 500 Corum was replaced by Joe Boyer on lap 109, despite the fact that it required Boyer to be relieved in his own car. Corum qualified for the 1928 Indianapolis 500, but suffered a crash during a practice run on the morning of the race.

He died on March 7, 1949 at age 50.
