Biography Of Alexander Graham Bell

Not how can formal education, but taught well by his family and taught myself, so Happenings Telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell who was born in 1847 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Interests Bell reproduce vocal arise naturally as her father was an expert in vocal physiology, improve speech and teach deaf people.

Bell never been to Boston, the state of Massachusetts in 1871. It was there that in 1875 he made the experiments which led to the discovery Telephone. He collects patents to strengthen its discovery in February 1876 and was rewarded a few weeks later. (It is interesting to note that another person named Elisha Gray also collect patent inventions for strengthening the same equipment on the day that coincided with what was done Bell, the difference is only a few hours).

Shortly after the patent is received, Bell showed Telephone in the exhibition 100 years of the city of Philadelphia. His discovery attracted the attention of the public and received awards for his work. However, The Western Union Telegraph Company which offers money of $ 100,000 for his invention of the evasive pay. Because of this, Bell and his friends, in the month of July 1877, founded his own company, the ancestors of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company now. Telephone quickly and achieve massive commercial success. This Sakarang AT & T is the largest business enterprise in the world.

Bell and his wife are in the month of March 1879 holds a 15 percent stake of the company it did not seem to have any idea how much will fantastisnya benefits that would be received by the company. Within just seven months, they’ve sold most of their shares at an average price $ 250 per share. In November the price had shot up to $ 1000 per share! (In March that his wife was the one who urged rush sale because he was worried the stock price will not be that high again!) In 1881 they sold again rashly third of the remaining shares they hold. Even so, yet in 1883 they’ve been able to get about a million dollars worth of profit.

Although the invention has been orbiting Bell Telephone so wealthy, he never ceased to continue his investigation, and he managed to find another various useful tools, though not as important as Telephone. His interests varied, but the main purpose is to help the deaf. His wife was deaf girl he coached himself. Four children, two boys two girls out thanks to his fourth marriage but died young. Bell finished 1882 United States citizen and died in 1922.

Large-small effect sizes Bell lies in the size of the assessment itself Telephone meaning. In my opinion, it was a huge influence because not many widely used inventions such people and so much influence in everyday life.

I put Bell in the order below Marconi radio since more diverse than Telephone usefulness. For example, talking on Telephone can basically be done over the radio, but in some cases (eg communication with aircraft in flight) Telephone can not replace the function of the radio. If only it was merely a factor just finished size, will Bell ranks far below the more than Marconi. However, there are two things worth considering. First, although the private Telephone conversation could have been done through radio, will be extremely difficult the per Telephone an we replace the entire system with equal radio network. Second, the principal method of distributing re-designed sound for the Bell receiver oper Telephone later taken and used by a radio receiver, such LPs and various other equipment. That’s why I consider the influence of Bell just slightly less than Marconi. ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL 1847-1922
