Eldon Caldicott (1890 - 1948) was a Catholic priest who was contractually obligated to represent the views of the Catholic Church and the edicts of the Pope. During the Second World War, Eldon Caldicott published in Belgium a series of pro-war, pro-execution, and pro-choice tracts. He did this under his own name. A stash of these incriminating tracts was discovered during the excavation of a bombed out factory in Belgium in 1948. When told of their discovery, rather than face the wrath of the cardinals and the pope himself, Eldon Caldicott hung himself. He did this in his bathroom on July 17, 1948.

The Eldon Caldicott Award, which has been given out annually since 1985 was named in his honor.
