Pat Cannon (May 22, 1904 - January 23, 1966) was a United States Representative from Florida. His full name was Arthur Patrick Cannon. He was born in Powder Springs, Georgia. Later, he moved to Laurens County, South Carolina where he attended the public schools. On the post-secondary level, he attended Wofford College, Stetson University, and was graduated from the law college of the University of Miami in 1931. He was admitted to the bar the same year and commenced practice in Miami.

Cannon was elected as a Democrat to the Seventy-sixth and to the three succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1939-January 3, 1947). He was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1946. After leaving Congress, he resumed the practice of law and was elected circuit judge of Dade County, Florida in 1952. He was reelected in 1954, and again in 1960 for a six-year term. He was a resident of Miami, Florida until his death there on January 23, 1966. Cannon was buried in Woodlawn Park Cemetery (now Caballero Rivero Woodlawn North Park Cemetery and Mausoleum), Miami, Florida.
