In 1931 he began writing his six-day-a-week editorial column called "Simeon Stylites", named after Saint Simeon Stylites, a 5th-century ascetic who lived on top of a pillar for 39 years.

In 1972, Rutgers University Press published a compilation of 112 of Caldwell's "Simeon Stylites" as In the Record: the Simeon Stylites Columns of William A. Caldwell (1972).
