Alexander Graham Bell

Scottish-Born Educator, Inventor, Scientist (1847–1922)


Alexander Graham Bell was a famous scientist and inventor, who invented the very first working telephone in 1876 when he was only 29 years old. Shortly after in 1877, Bell founded the ‘Bell Telephone Company’, now known as AT&T. However, Bell did face more than 600 lawsuits over his telephone patent throughout his life.


Bell was the second son of Alexander Melville Bell and Eliza Grace Symonds Bell, whom was deaf. He was named after his father and grandfather, but he never had a middle name (Graham) until his 11th birthday, when he convinced his father to give it to him as a birthday present. The name was taken from Alexander Graham who was his father’s former student, and who was boarding with the family at the time. He had two brothers, both of whom died from tuberculosis.
