In 1914 Paddison took a position with West Publishing Company, where he would work for 32 years, retiring in 1946 as supervisor of sales. West Publishing Co. produced law books, primarily. Upon retiring he returned to North Carolina.

Upon his death he established, by bequest, an endowment at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the Department of Classics there. This endowment established permanent faculty positions in Classics.
