Death: 1921

Rev. Calfee was the son of Rev. William Monroe Calfee and Mary Hopkins Strong. He was the husband of Hattie H. Calfee, and they were the parents of Paul M. and William W. Calfee.

He was a Preacher-Lecturer, Methodist pastor, President of the South Dakota Epworth Assembly (1898-1902), and a speaker at the Oregon, Missouri Chautauqua in 1912.

From the "Ockland Acorn," Oakland, IA:
"Rev. W.J. Calfewe is a typical, self-made man, without other than sheer force of intellect. He has forced his way from an obscure country school teacher in Ringgold County, Iowa, to the front rank amont the Pulpit Orators of the State. He is possessed of a magnificent presence, a fine physique, a splendid voice, and his style of oratory is captivating."

From the "El Paso Herald," El Paso, TX:
"Brother W.J. Calfee is every inch a man, big-hearted, unselfish, sympathetic, possessing all the qualities of a true gentleman."

From the "World Herald," Omaha, Nebraska:
"'Ideals and Purposes' by Rev. W.J. Calfee was a powerful, thoughtful and eloquent appeal."
