Alexander Graham Bell (March 3, 1847 – August 2, 1922) was an
eminent scientist, inventor, engineer
and innovator who is credited with
inventing the first practical telephone.
Bell's father, grandfather, and brother
had all been associated with work on elocution and speech, and both his mother and wife were deaf,
profoundly influencing Bell's life's work.
His research on hearing and speech further led him to experiment
with hearing devices which eventually
culminated in Bell being awarded the
first US patent for the telephone in 1876.
In retrospect, Bell considered his most famous invention
an intrusion on his real work as a
scientist and refused to have a telephone in his study.
Many other inventions marked Bell's
later life, including groundbreaking
work in optical telecommunicati ons, hydrofoils and aeronautics. In 1888, Alexander Graham Bell became one of
the founding members of the National Geographic Society. Bell has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history.
