    who is the subject of "to call"

    The following is a part of reading comprehension of an exam in China:

    ...As the result of his work, Ebbesmeyer has become known as the scientist to call with questions about any unusual objects found floating in the ocean. He has even started an association of beachcombers and ocean experts, with 500 subscribers from West Africa to New Zealand. They have recorded all lost objects ranging from potatoes to golf gloves.
    Question: Ebbesmeyer is most famous for ________.

    A. traveling widely the coastal cities of the world B. making records for any lost objects on the sea
    C. running a global currents research association D. phoning about any doubtful objects on the sea
    And the answer is "D".

    Don't you think it is a wrong answer? I think it is a misunderstanding of the subject of "to call". Which answer is better?
    Thanks for help!
