Alexander Graham Bell was born on March 3rd, 1847 in Edinburgh, Scotland. He was a scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator who was credited for inventing the first practical telephone.
His father Alexander Melville Bell and his grandfather whom he was named after were involved with work on elocution and speech and this influenced him a lot while growing up. Also, the fact that his mother was deaf had a great influence.
In 1870 the Bell family moved to Canada. Anfter a while he went to live in Boston in 1871, Bell already had a promising future. As he tutored deaf children he and his two partners Gardiner Hubbard and George Sanders developed an interest in creating an harmonic telegraph that allowed several telegraph transmissions might be sent on the same wire.
During the process, he became sidetracked with the idea of transmitting the human voice over wires and Hubbard hired the skilled electrician Thomas Watson.
After many tries the first telephone working patent was finally built.
Together, Bell and Watson formed a great partnership being Bell the ideas man and Watson with he ability to make them come true
Legend says that after spilling a container of transmitting fluid, Bell shouted to Watson who was in another room. Watson hear his voice through the wire, making this the first phone call.
"Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you!"
