Alexander Graham Bell 1876

After his family moved to Canada, Alexander went to Boston. There he met Gardiner Greene Hubbard, a wealthy lawyer. His daughter Mabel was deaf and was one of Alexander's students. One day while visiting in the Hubbard home the two men started talking about the telegraph. Alexander had an idea for sending multiple messages at the same time. Mr. Hubbard was very excited by the idea and he, Alexander and another man formed a partnership to develop the idea.

Alexander was also trying to solve the problem of how to send voices over a wire, the seeds of the invention of the telephone.
