What in the world would we do without telephones? We should thank Alexander Graham Bell. On March 3, 1847, Alexander Graham Bell was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. His parents were Elisa Grace and Alexander Melville Bell. He had two brothers named Melville and Edward.
Alexander Graham Bell attended regular school at the age of 15. At a young age, he was always curious. His mother taught him and his brothers grammar, spelling, reading, and math.
In 1872, Alexander Graham Bell started a school for the deaf. He taught at Boston University in 1873. In 1877, he married Mabel Hubbard. He also organized the Bell Telephone Company. Later in his life, Alexander Graham Bell worked on many other inventions besides the telephone. He was proudest of his work with the deaf. He continued that until he died on August 1, 1922.
