Mr Alexander Graham Bell
Alexander Graham Bell
When he was 23 Bell and his parents moved to Canada where he studied the human voice.
On February 14 1876 Bell and electrical engineer named Elisha Gray both filed patents with the U.S patent office covering the transmission of sound telegraphically.
There is debate about who got there first but the patent was a warded to Bell. Bells first words with the working telephone were spoken to his assistant Watson.
Alexander Graham Bell died 1922 at the age of 72.
