Moynihan was born in Chicago on September 25, 1869, the son of John Moynihan and Celia (O'Donnell) Moynihan.[1] He attended the public schools of Chicago and the city's St. Patrick's High School and became active in publishing and printing as a typesetter, and worked his way up to president of the Calumet Publishing Company. He later became vice president of the Calumet Coal Company, one of the largest in the Chicago area.[1] Moynihan's additional business interests included serving as president of the Hiawatha Phonograph Company.[1] In addition, he also served as president of the South Chicago Businessmen's Club.[1]

A Republican, from 1901 to 1909, Moynihan was a member of the Chicago Board of Aldermen.[1] From 1921 to 1929 he was a member of the Illinois Commerce Commission, and he was the commission chairman from 1928 to 1929.
