Mr. McCalip had varied business interests in the city of Washington, D.C. up until the day he died. In December of 1921, one newspaper ad showed that he was on an advisory council to a new financial institution called the Banking Trust & Mortgage Company. There were ads for his Ford automobile dealerships as well. He was also part of many local civic affairs. In one article in June of 1920, it was noted that he was on one of several committees formed to help the work of the D.C. suffrage drive. This effort of course was largely to help get women the right to vote. His son Curtis worked for him at one dealer in 1924. His daughter Mabel was noted singer.
In his obituary in the Washington Post, in addition to those noted below, he also was stepfather to the son Daisy had from a prior marriage.
