His education was attained at St. Charles College, and at Washington University, where he earned a law degree in 1895. After establishing his legal career in St. Louis, Caulfield entered into politics. He served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1907 to 1909, and was a St. Louis excise commissioner from 1909 to 1910.
