If Wilkinson Call was fortunate politically in being of a family already prominent in Florida affairs, he may have suffered historically as the nephew of a great uncle and the uncle of a great nephew; his own colorful career, including eighteen years as a United States senator, being obscured by the earlier glory of Richard Keith Call, as soldier and territorial governor of Florida, and to the present generation by the recent service of Rhydon M. Call, State and Federal jurist. Relatively few Floridians of today remember more than the name of Wilkinson Call and of these, fewer know that Tallahassee was his home from boyhood until he had first been elected a senator from Florida.
