Alexander Graham Bell
Inventor of the telephone
My name is Alexander Graham Bell. I was born on March 3, 1847 in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. Both my mother and my wife are deaf so I enjoy working with deaf people. I went to college at the University of London. Many years later I established a school for deaf people in Boston. I was granted my first official patent for the telephone in March 1876. I invented other things including the photophone and telectroscope. I think I am a great inventor of the industrial revolution because my invention, the telephone, greatly improved communication.
