A bit about Alexander Graham Bell ...

Alexander Graham Bell (March 3, 1847 August 2, 1922) was a British-American-Canadian scientist and inventor. He was, until recently, widely considered to be the inventor of the telephone, although this matter has become controversial, with a number of people claiming that Antonio Meucci was the 'real' inventor and others holding out for Elisha Gray, the founder of the Western Electric Manufacturing Company. In addition to his work in telecommunications technology, he was responsible for important advances in aviation and hydrofoil technology.
