I have built a directory list and would like to create a view ordered by last name. The problem is using the Person field does not actually contain a string for my to base another field upon. Is there a way to pull just the person's last name with a calculated field so I can order the people by last name?

Either change your Person field to "Show field: Last Name" or create a new person field with "Show field: Last Name" and set it to equal your existing person field using a workflow.
