Cessna was involved in the helicopter game from around 1952 until 1962 through development and certification of the Cessna CH1 Skyhook. They didn't get the military contracts they needed and virtually erased all evidence of their efforts. Concentrated on the C337 Skymaggot and C310 after that.

 

Here's a few pages from a 1961 promotional brochure.
