Henry Laurens Call was an aero inventor in Kansas. He was a founder of the Aerial Navigation Company of America‎. The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum site says:[1]

The Aerial Navigation Company of America (1908-1912) was founded by Henry Laurens Call, socialist lawyer and economist. Located in Girard, Kansas, the Aerial Navigation Company designed the the Call airship -- the first Kansas-designed and built aircraft to make an attempt to take off. The airship was not successful, but the company established a factory, a flying school, and built an additional 13 aircraft before going bankrupt in 1912. Only one of the aircraft, the Call Monoplane, actually flew. The Company's biggest success was with the Call Aviation Engine which they manufactured and marketed.
