Birth: Mar. 28, 1877
Death: Jan. 30, 1962

Benjamin Carlos Call was born March 28, 1877 in Willard, Box Elder, Utah to Omer Call and Elenor Jones Call. He was number 6 of the 11 children born to Omer & Elenor. Siblings include Justin David (1868), Mary Lucina (1869), Cyrus John (1871), Joseph (1872), Sarah Eliza (1875), Esther (1879), William Vosco (1881), Margaret Elenor (1883), Chauncy Homer (1884) and Waldemar Alma (1889). He also had 11 half-siblings. [His father was a native of Vermont and of English descent. He came to Utah during the early '50s, establishing his home at Willard, where he engaged in the operation of a grist mill, having one of the first mills of the kind in the state. He continued to devote his attention to milling, farming and stock raising throughout his life and a very substantial competence rewarded his labors. He died at the age of sixty-six years in the faith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in which he had taken an active part, at one time filling a mission in the central west]. [His mother, Eleanor (Jones) Call, a native of Wales, came to America in young girlhood and was married in Salt Lake City]. Benjamin C. Call began his education in the public schools of Willard and afterward attended the Brigham Young University at Provo and the Weber Stake Academy. In early manhood he took up the profession of teaching, which he followed in Emery and Box Elder counties for a year each, but he regarded this merely as an initial step to other professional labor and, determining upon the practice of law as a life work, entered the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. He was there graduated in 1906 with the LL.D. degree and following his graduation he opened an office in Brigham, Utah, where he has since remained. He prepares his cases with great thoroughness and care and is seldom, if ever, at fault in the application of a legal principle. He is clear and cogent in his reasoning and logical in his deductions and his ability is widely acknowledged.

On May 29, 1908 in the Salt Lake Temple, he married Hannah Louise Bywater a native of Utah and a daughter of James and Hannah (Jenson) Bywater. They became the parents of 8 children: Phyllis (1909), Marie (1910), Louise (1912), Benjamin Edward (1914), Don Carlos (1916), Joan Eliza (1918), Willard B. (1920) and Omer Justin (1922). Benjamin played quarterback on the 1st BYU football team that held state championships for 2 years of which he was captain. He later went on to be a lawyer in Brigham City, Utah.

Benjamin belonged to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the third ward and has served in the bishopric and on a mission to the southwestern states, during which time he had his headquarters in Kansas City. While there he was in the mission presidency and edited the Truth Reflex.
Mr. Call belongs to the Box Elder County Commercial Club and no plan or project of that organization for the upbuilding of the community or the development of this section of the state seeks his aid in vain. In politics he is an active republican and is a recognized leader in the ranks of the party. He served as the first county attorney of Box Elder county, was the first district attorney in his judicial district, comprising Box Elder, Cache and Rich counties, and he has also served as city attorney of Brigham. During the war he was a member of a committee of three to instruct the soldiers on proper deportment and advise them concerning insurance and other matters. He was also chairman in the third precinct of the second, third and fourth Liberty Loan drives and he never hesitated in the slightest degree to give his earnest aid and support to every plan which tended to uphold American interests throughout the period of world strife. He passed away January 30, 1962 and was buried in Brigham City, Utah.
