Do you know how the telephone was invented and, who invented the it? Well, I know the answer to both questions. To find out more read this essay. Alexander Graham Bell was born in Edinburgh, Scotland on March 9 1847. He was around deaf people a lot because he worked at a school for the deaf.
The Inventor of the Telephone Inventor, teacher, science extraordinaire is what most people would say if they heard the name Alexander Graham Bell. Bell was a young man who changed society with his one creation. Alexander Graham Bell made a difference in the world because he improved communication, by inventing the telephone. He introduced a new form of connection to the world after his invention. He left a legacy as the first person to make a device that could talk to you through a wire.
He achieved so many things in his lifetime including the fact that his unexpected inventions earned him the title of “The Wizard Of Menlo Park”. (Markham, p. 88) He also received 1,093 patents for his inventions in his entire life! This is the most the US patent office has given to one single person. (Markham, p. 1) His achievements were some of the brightest moments of his life, but there were also some memories that were not so happy. While Edison was a full time inventor, he was hardly aware of the condition of his family until someone else told him.
Benjamin Henry Latrobe: The Man Who Built America, Above & Below Most know Benjamin Henry Latrobe as America’s first professional architect, and the designer of the US Capitol.

“Benjamin Franklin lived his life in the spirit of a renaissance man: he was deeply interested in the world around him, and he excelled in several widely differing fields of human endeavor.” (“Home”). Franklin was born in Boston of 1706 where he was raised in a poor family and was unable to have an education for more than two years. At age 12, he was apprenticed by his older brother who worked in a printing business. Benjamin later became successful in the printing business and soon became successful through his inventions as well. Later, he also became involved in politics and became one of the founding fathers.
The finalized version of Morse code was created in 1873 with the help of Alfred Vail. I. Three years later, they patented the code system “Telegraph signals.” III. Along with the creation of Morse code, the telegraph also began to develop. A.
Now, think about if we did not have power or air conditioning. Well, Tesla, with his inventions, helped to change that, along with legendary inventors like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, and others (“Nikola”, n.d.). He did develop many inventions, important inventions too (“Nikola Tesla”, 1998). He patented almost everything, too, and he died holding over 700 patents (“Nikola”, n.d.). As I mentioned earlier, he also could have been the inspiration for wireless transmission through his failed attempt to make it (“Nikola”,
Arnold Lucias Gesell is an American psychologist and pediatrician born on June 21, 1880 in Alma, Wisconsin, U.S. His parents valued Education, which then made Gesell decide that he wanted to become a teacher and so he did. He graduated from Wisconsin University in 1903 and became a high school teacher and principal. Later on, he entered graduate school at Clark University, where he received a Ph.D. degree in 1906. He then studied Medicine at Yale in order to do a research in child development and received an M.D. in 1915.
If anything is a testament to the breadth of his impact and influence, it is this. He founded the Billy Graham Evangelical Association (BGEA) in 1950, one of the most influential Christian Media organizations of it’s time, and a model for adapting evangelism to new technology (television in Grahams time). Grahams integrity kept him distanced from the scandals other televangelists were embroiled in through the 1980’s, allowing his sermons and other television specials to reach out to people across the world - Larry B. Stammer credits his 1996 special as reaching more than 2.5 billion people around the world. By incorporating new media into the already immense reach of his evangelism, Graham set a precedent for adapting ministry to new media forms, something Christians today continue to emulate in using the internet and digital media to reach out. In addition to using new media to fashion himself into a Christian Media Superstar, Graham founded Christianity Today in 1956, which has grown into today's leading journal for Christian Evangelicals.
“It’s Canadian? !” was the reaction almost any Canadian would have. The runner up to the first successful voice transmission’s inventor was Reginald Fessenden (after Fessenden’s radio, the final radio was then made, by some guy who’s name I couldn't find), who was inspired by famous inventor Thomas Edison and Adolf Slaby and Georg von Arco (who created the first radio transmission, though instead of voice, it was sounds), came the Radio Voice Transmission system. Fessenden, being born in the mid-October of 1866 in Quebec, grew up as an intelligent student and always wanted to be an inventor. So to excel his field of knowledge, he goes to New York City, U.S.A, he applied to a position with Thomas Edison, with the most honest letter: “Do not know much
