Alexander Graham Bell
The inventor of the telephone, ‘Alexander Graham Bell’, was born on 3rd March 1847 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father was Professor Alexander Melville Bell and his mother was Eliza Grace. He later settled in the United States of America.
Alexander Graham Bell was an eminent scientist, inventor, engineer, and innovator. Throughout his life, Bell had been interested in the education of deaf people, as both his mother and his wife were deaf. This interest led to invent the microphone and in 1876, his ‘Electrical Speech Machine’, which we now call a telephone.
What followed after that was history. Bell Telephone Company (later AT&T) was set up in 1877 and grew to be one of the largest telephone companies in the world.
