Born May 11, 1897, Cravath started as an illustrator for the New York Journal in the 1920's. He worked for King Features Syndicates as a comic illustrator and did Sunday Frank Buck comics for the New York Journal. In 1928 he began to freelance for movie studios, among them RKO and Columbia.

His last published work was The Unforgiven with Burt Lancaster in 1960. He died in January 1964, leaving his house and collection (containing copies of his published work) to his son Douglas (1918-2002). Douglas, in turn, kept his father's collection intact until his own death in August 2002, leaving no heirs. Because almost none of his artwork was ever sold, Cravath is a relatively little known artist today.
