Compose a 500 words essay on Alexander Graham Bell. From an early age Bell demonstrated great intellectual curiosity and potential. Bell became interested in botany and at age twelve built a contraption to aid a neighbor in his flourmill (Mackay, pg. 9). His father published texts on elocution and Bell demonstrated a strong propensity in this subject. Bell would later attend prestigious high school, followed by college, and was generally recognized as mediocre at both. Upon graduation Bell began experiments with sound following his fathers interest in elocution. His experiments would ultimately lead him to become Professor of Vocal Physiology and Elocution at Boston University (Mackay, pg. 111).While Bell experimented with a number of sound elements, his work with the telephone undoubtedly holds the greatest contemporary relevance. In this context of understanding, Bell had begun experimenting with a phonautograph in 1874 (Town, pg. 189). While he recognized that he was on to something he realized lack of proper funding and knowledge to complete his final invention that would electronically transmit the human voice. These challenges were overcome when Bell first encountered Gardiner Hubbard and Thomas Sanders who would help fund his invention, as well as Thomas Watson who had the required knowledge in engineering to put it together. Ultimately, in 1876 Bell would complete his invention of the telephone, three days after receiving the patent (Ross, pg. 302). While later in his life Bell would invent the metal detector, his greatest cultural contribution is undoubtedly telephone.Even as Bell made a substantial social contribution through his invention of telephone, the question of what the world would be like without Bell is a complicated one. While Bell invented the telephone, its clear that there were elements that emerged in contemporary technological platforms and allowed for this invention to occur. It is highly probable then, that if Bell had not invented his
