Alexander Graham Bell

A Scottish-born inventor and educator by the name of Alexander Graham Bell is well known for his invention of the telephone. Alexander Graham Bell introduced flight as well. Bell summed up his approach to life and to inventing by saying " Leave the beaten track occasionally and dive into the woods.

" The telegraph had been invented before Bell's time. Signals, music, and even voice like sounds had been transmitted electronically by wire." Though, the human voice had not been transmitted through wire, Bell was thefirst to succeed at this. Bell had an interest in the human voice that led to his invention of the telephone. Although, when Bell began experimenting, his purpose wasn't to invent the telephone, instead he wanted to develop a multiple telegraph system. The telegraph Bell was experimenting with consisted mostly of reeds. Bell asked his partner Watson to pluck a reed, and the vibration was felt by Bell in the other room, in that moment the telephone was born. Bell received the patent for the telephone on March 17, 1876. Five days later Watson heard the famous words " Mr. Watson come here- I want to see you," and on June 25, 1876 the telephone wasfirst introduced to the world at the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia.
While working on the telephone, Bell mentioned to Watson that their next project would be a flying machine. Bell began with flying kites; he made a kite stable enough to lift a person into the air. In 1896 Bell photographed the ? mile flight of a model built by his good friend Simo…
