Alexander Graham Bell Invention

The History of The Telephone

Alexander Graham Bell is very smart because he invented the telephone. He was born on March 3, 1847 in Edinburgh, Scotland. When he was 16, he and his brothers made a talking machine that said, " Mamma, Mamma." He decided to invent the phone, because he was in love with a deaf girl. It took him many years to perfect it. He applied for the patent on February 14, 1876, and succeeded in getting the first telephone to work a few days later.

Bell and his assistant, Mr Watson worked together to test the phone. Mr. Watson was an electrical designer. One day Bell said the first words into a working telephone. Bell said into the one end of the telephone, " Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you." Mr. Watson ran into the room where Bell was, and said he heard it clearly.

Bell improved the telephone, and ten years later in 1886 there were more than 150,00 people who owned a telephone. When Bell died in 1922, there were two million telephones in the U.S.A. He was the age of 75, and died on August 2. He was a very successful person. He had a long, hard time making the telephone. I believe he is the best inventor.
