What He Inspired in Us Today
We now have so many different communication devices-(iPhones, Galaxys, etc...) all starting with Bell's amazing invention. His inventions changed the way we communicate today. (Think: Over 130 years ago, the only way of communicating was through telegraph and mail.)

Alexander Bell was born Edinburgh, Scotland on March 5, 1847. The name Graham wasn't added until he was 10. He was home- schooled by his mother. He attended Royal High-school in Edinburgh when he was 11, and he dropped out when he was only 15--without a highschool diploma. He went to college at the Universties of Edinburgh and London.
In the last years of his life, Bell worked as a teacher for the deaf and as an inventor. He was also president of The Clarke School for the Deaf in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Bell died in his sleep August 2, 1922. The phone lines were shut down for 1 minute in his memory and magnificent inventions.
