William Musgrave Calder (March 31869 - March 31945) was a United States politician from New York State.

Calder was born in Brooklyn, New York and died there on his 76th birthday. He trained as a carpenter, attended night classes at Cooper Institute, and served as the Borough of Brooklyn Building Commissioner 1902-1903. He represented New York as a Republican in the United States House of Representatives from 1905 until 1915. In 1916 he was elected to the United States Senate and served one term, from 1917 to 1923 after he lost his 1922 reelection bid to Democrat Royal S. Copeland. After leaving Congress he continued to be active in the building trade and financial institutions. His papers are held in a number of archives including: Herbert Hoover Library, West Branch, IA; The New-York Historical Society; and Yale University.

In 1893 he married Catherine E. Harloe. His children included Elsie Calder (married to RAdm Robert C. Lee) and William M. Calder II. His grandson William M. Calder III is a professor of Classics at the Univ. of Illinois-Urbana and an author of numerous books.
