Alexander Graham Bell's words, written in 1875, heralded the very first time that human speech was transmitted via a device that came to be known as the telephone. Bell's "accidental" discovery revolutionized communication and forever marked him as one of America's most famous inventors.
Who was the man behind the telephone?
Alec Bell was a thinker and a questioner, but even more important, a man driven to accomplish something. The telephone was just one of his many inventions. They range from a simple agricultural tool he made at age 11 to a patent for his work on the hydrofoil 64 years later. Bell's enthusiasm extended beyond inventing to "the world and all that is in it" and led him to become an original member of the National Geographic Society.
