He not only created many inventions that varied from communicating human voices through a wire, to inventing an electrical apparatus to locate bullets in the body (“Bell, Alexander Graham,” 240-241). But he not only invented life-changing devices, but he also was a divine teacher of the deaf, and told his family, “he would rather be remembered as such a teacher than as the inventor of the telephone” (“Bell, Alexander Graham,” 240). Some of Alexander Graham Bell's many inventions... The Telephone Alexander Graham Bell was 27 years old when he worked out the principle of transmitting speech electrically (“Bell, Alexander Graham,” 240). Historians Elisabeth Gaynor Ellis and Anthony Esler state that Alexander Graham Bell patented the telephone in 1876 (246). Alexander Graham Bell having his first conversation on his telephone. The Photophone In 1881 Bell and his assistant, Charles Sumner Tainter, invented the photophone which is a device that enabled sound to be transmitted on a beam of light (“Alexander Graham Bell–Biography,” 1). Alexander Graham Bell's Photophone Alexander Graham Bell Industrial Revolution Inventions Alexander Graham Bell's passion of helping the deaf and working with visible speech changed the lives of many with that disability, including his wife who was one of his deaf students ("Alexander Graham Bell Biography," 2). While he took part in great strides with visible speech, he was also very passionate about the unknown in science, and all of his inspiring inventions, such as the telephone, changed the face of technology and communication for the better. The Metal Detector In 1881, President Garfield had been shot by an assassin, so Alexander Graham Bell developed an electrical apparatus to locate the bullet in his body in effort to save his life (“Bell, Alexander Graham,” 241). This “metal detector” was developed long before the first basic x-rays were discovered. Bell using his metal detector apparatus to try and locate the bullet in president Garfield's body.
