Born in Greensboro, North Carolina, Cavanah was nominated by President Calvin Coolidge on December 22, 1926, for the seat on the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho. It was vacated by Frank S. Dietrich, who was promoted to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
Confirmed by the U.S. Senate on January 3, 1927, Cavanah received his commission the same day. He assumed senior status on January 3, 1942, and served in that capacity for over eleven years, until his death at age 81 in 1953.
Cavanah and his wife, Mildred Benzel Cavanah (1877–1927), are buried at Morris Hill Cemetery in Boise.
