Biographical Note:

Father John W. Cavanaugh, C.S.C., was born May 21, 1870, in Leetonia, Ohio, to Patrick and Elizabeth Cavanaugh.  He attended Holy Cross Seminary at the University of Notre Dame, becoming a member of the Congregation of the Holy Cross.  Cavanaugh taught at St. Joseph’s College in Cincinnati until 1892, at which time he returned to Notre Dame as an English professor.  He was ordained a priest in 1894, but continued to work at Notre Dame. In 1905, Cavanaugh became president of Notre Dame, a position which he held until 1919.  After he stepped down as president, he continued to work as an English professor and to have speaking engagements throughout the United States.  Cavanaugh died March 22, 1935, in Notre Dame, Indiana.
