We all know Alexander Graham Bell as the inventor of the first practical telephone. Bell was also an eminent scientist, inventor, and engineer. Bell was born on March 3, 1847 in Edinburgh Scotland. His grandfather, father, and brother were all associated with fine work in elocution, the study in former speaking in pronunciation, grammer, style, and tone. It was also said the Alexander Graham Bell’s mother and wife both suffered from serious hearing disorders which inspired his lifes work. Although Bell received the first U.S. patent for the telephone, he called his invention an intrusion on his true work as a scientist and refused to keep the telephone in his study. Bell also contributed excellent work in hydrofoils, aeronautics, and optical telecommunications. Bell died in 1922 having mass complications from diabetes, but not before becoming one of the founding members of the Natural Geographic Society. Alexander Graham Bell has been recognized as one of the most influential figures in human history and today we honor his life and thank him for his TruStatement.
