Born in Paducah, Kentucky in McCracken County, Kentucky, Carroll continued to reside in that county, where he worked as a lawyer. He served as a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives, serving five terms beginning in 1961 representing Paducah. Carroll served as Speaker of the House from 1968 through 1970. In 1971 when former governor Bert T. Combs sought a second term as Governor of Kentucky, he selected Carroll as his informal running mate. Candidates for governor and lieutenant governor of Kentucky ran separate from each other until the passage of a 1992 constitutional amendment; still, Combs, facing a formidable challenge from his one-time protege Wendell H. Ford, sought to create a balanced ticket to his advantage in the Democratic primary. Combs lost to Ford, but Carroll won the separate primary for Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky and then won the general election. Carroll took office as Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky in late 1971. Then Carroll succeeded to office as Governor of Kentucky when Governor Ford resigned in 1974 upon his election to the United States Senate. Carroll became the first Kentucky governor ever from the state's far-western Purchase region. He was subsequently elected to a full term after landslide victories in the 1975 Democratic primary and general elections.

Carroll's administration increased funding for primary and secondary schools, created the Department of Energy, and advocated the use of coal to offset the energy crisis. He also served as Chairman of the National Governors Association in 1978. After his service as governor Carroll resumed his law practice in Frankfort, Kentucky for many years. He unsuccessfully sought another term as governor in 1987, finishing fourth in the Democratic primary behind incumbent Lieutenant Governor Steven Beshear, former governor John Y. Brown, Jr. and the winner, Wallace G. Wilkinson. Carroll again returned to his Frankfort law practice. In 2004, Carroll was elected to the Kentucky State Senate from the 7th district which includes the state capitol of Frankfort, Kentucky. It has been reported that Carroll is considering a bid for another term as governor in 2007.

Julian Morton Carroll (born April 16, 1931) was Governor of the U.S. state of Kentucky from 1974 to 1979 as a Democrat.
Carroll's administration increased funding for primary and secondary schools, created the Department of Energy, and advocated the use of coal to offset the energy crisis.
In 2004, Carroll was elected to the Kentucky State Senate from the 7th district which includes the state capitol of Frankfort, Kentucky.
The Kentucky Post (732 words)
Carroll won the Senate seat by defeating Republican Harold Fletcher, the brother of Gov. Ernie Fletcher.
Carroll said he doesn't see his term in the Senate as greatly impacting his political legacy, which some would say became tarnished by a federal grand jury investigation that ended with Carroll cleared of any wrongdoing.
Carroll "going back to the Legislature is really like a homecoming in one way because being that people-oriented he will find himself back in the middle of things again," Bryant said.
