What was Alexander Graham Bell's religion?
Quoted from ''Alexander Graham Bell and the Conquest of Solitude" The official Bell biography by Robert W. Bruce. Pg 490. "In 1901 Bell came across a Unitarian pamphlet and found its theology congenially undogmatic. 'I have always considered myself as an Agnostic,' he wrote [his wife] Mabel, 'but I have now discovered that I am a Unitarian Agnostic.' "

He invented the telephone and he also invented a way to help deaf people hear. Bells successes include: . the photophone (a device used for transmitting sound via light) . he improved the Edison phonograph to make it commercially viable . improved wing design for airplane flight . developed… hydrofoil technology . improved breeding practices for sheep breeders . He designed an airplane called the Silver Dart . Telephone-1876 . First crude metal detector- 1881 . Audiometer (to detect minor hearing problems) a small device that can tell if there are problems with your hearing - the audiograph for detecting deafness . Metal jacket(to assist in breathing) the forerunner of the iron lung . Hydrofoils and Hydroplanes- 1908 Alexander Graham Bell, arguably, was the inventor of the telephone. Some people say Thomas Watson, Inocezzo Manzetti and other people should be given credit, too. The reason why it is hard to give full credit to one person is because many people kept building on the idea of a 'speaking telegraph' until Bell came up with the final product. He also helped in the invention of the first crude metal detector, to try to detect the bullet the President of the United States was shot with, but unfortunately did not succeed with this. Although, this invention did help save hundreds of people's lives over the next 20 years. Alexander Graham Bell is most famous today for having invented the telephone, but he was also responsible for early versions of the phonograph, the metal detector, the audiometer (a hearing detector), the hydrofoil boat, and even a selenium-based battery. He also came up with the basic principles of recording information to magnetic media, which decades later, would lead to the creation of the cassette recorder and the floppy computer disc. You put two hydrofoils. He inproved it the second time, then he invented the hydroplane. (MORE)
In a word; tough. And not a very nice life for a young boy- but his family was close and he turned out to be an ingeniously wonderful inventor..
Alexander Graham Bell had 2 brothers, one older (Melville James) and one younger (Edward Charles). His mother's name was Eliza Grace and his Father's name was Alexander Melville. He married Mabel Hubbard when he was 30 years old and they had 4 children. The 2 boys did not live past infancy, and the… two girls were named Elsie May and Marian Hubbard. (MORE)
they were the telephone and he helped improve the airplane also. the telephone first was invented and first worked march 10, 1876.
Thomas A. Watson was Alexander Graham Bell's assistant at the time of his invention of the telephone in 1876.
He has been associated with inventing the telephone, which greatly speeded up communication, for the masses.
The brothers names were Melville and Edward. But yet I too have to figure out the names of the sisters.
Alexander Graham Bell had a brother named Melville and a brothernamed Edward. Bell is most well-known for inventing the telephone.
Telephones converts sound into electrical signals, and backwards.Speakers with dynamic-coil transdusers convert electrical signalsinto sound by using the properties of electromagnetism.
On March 10, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell uttered the first wordsever into a working telephone. He said, Mr. Watson - Come here - Iwant to see you! according to the Library of Congress.
No, Alexander Graham Bell's wife was not dumb. However, she wasdeaf all of her life. She did graduate from the ColumbiaInstitution of the Deaf and Dumb.
Alexander Graham Bell and his wife Mabel Gardner Hubbard had four children, two boys who died in infancy and two daughters... Elsie May Bell (1878 - 1864) and Marian Hubbard Bell (1880 - 1962). There is no indication that any of the children were deaf.
I think Edward died of Tuberculous. However, I am not sure how Melville (Melly) died. I remember that in a book I read about Alexander's life that he named his son after Edward (although his dies after having respiratory problems several hours after birth).
he had no children yes he did he had 4 2 boys and 2 girls
Alexander Graham Bell's mother was Eliza Grace Symonds who became Eliza Bell after she married his father, Alexander Melville Bell. She was deaf and had a severe hearing loss. She used an ear trumpet and some signing to communicate.
On March 3, 1847, Alexander Graham Bell was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. His grandfather and father were working in the field of elocution and speech. . In 1858, from his eleventh birthday, he acquired the middle name Graham. But his close friends and relatives continued calling him 'Aleck'. . At …the age of twelve, Bell came to know that the process of removal of husks of wheat grains was arduous. He combined rotating paddles with sets of nailbrushes, thus creating a simple 'dehusking machine'. This was his first invention! He was a student of Royal High School in Edinburgh, Scotland. When Bell was sixteen, he became a 'pupil-teacher' of elocution and music in Western House Academy. Bell graduated from the University of Toronto. . In 1863, on seeing Aleck's interest in speech, his father took him to see an automaton, which was developed by Sir Charles Wheatstone. It was based on the work of Baron Wolfgang von Kempelen and simulated human voice. Aleck obtained a copy of von Kempelen's book, published in German, translated it and worked on building an automaton head. The combined efforts of Aleck and his brother, boosted by their father, bore fruit. From his translation, Aleck inferred, that if sounds of vowels could be produced electrically, consonant sounds and speech could also be produced by electrical means. . In 1865, Bell family migrated to London but Aleck returned to Weston House and continued with his experiments in sound and electricity. In his efforts to transmit sound by means of electricity, he deployed a telegraph wire from his room to his friend's house. During the following year, Aleck worked at the position of an instructor in Somerset College in England. On the sad demise of his brother, Aleck returned home in 1867. . Bell's time line shows that he moved to Canada with his brother's widow and his parents in 1870. He set up a workshop near his residence and continued experimenting on sound and electricity. He designed a piano, which could transmit music by means of electricity. . In April 1871, Aleck's time line marked his move to Boston to provide training in Visible Speech System to school instructors. He repeated his training program in American Asylum for Deaf-mutes in Hartford and then in the Clarke School for the Deaf in Northampton. . In October 1872, Alexander Bell opened a school in Boston named the "Vocal Physiology and Mechanics of Speech" for deaf students. He also worked as a private tutor. Helen Keller was one of his well-known students. . In 1873, he became the professor of Vocal Psychology and Elocution at the Boston University School of Oratory. . In the spring of 1874, Alexander Graham Bell experimented on the phonautograph, a device that helps plotting sound waves. In the summer of the same year, he conceived the idea of a telephone. Thomas Watson started assisting Bell. . On June 2, 1875, Watson happened to pluck one of the multiple metal reeds that formed Bell's apparatus. This accident demonstrated a telephone, which could transmit sound. . U.S. Patent Office issued the patent numbered 174,465 to Bell, on 7th March 1876. It covered the method of and apparatus for transmitting sound waves telegraphically. . On the night following 3rd August 1876, Bell received a long-distance voice message from Brantford, which lied 4 miles away. Then Bell began to publicly demonstrate and lecture about his new invention. . In 1877, Bell Telephone Company was formed. On 11th July, during the same year, Bell married Mabel Hubbard in Cambridge. By then he had started signing by the name 'Alec' and not 'Aleck'. . Until 1897, his teaching profession remained his main source of income. The invention of telephone was not profitable on economic terms. . On 25th January 1915, Bell called up Watson, across the continent. Thirty-eight years before this transcontinental call, the same two people had conversed on phone. The one in 1915 was of a much better voice quality! . Through his journey of life, Bell had to face competition and had to struggle for obtaining the patents for his inventions. Apart from a telephone, the invention of a metal detector in 1881 is attributed to Alexander Graham Bell. A metal jacket that helps in breathing, an audiometer that detects hearing problems also find a place in the list of Bell's inventions. He received many honors and many were given his name! . On 2nd August 1922, Alexander Graham Bell expired, leaving behind a legacy of the wonderful invention of a telephone for us. hi kids wat up (MORE)
Alexander Graham Bell married Mabel Hubbard, a student of his who was ten years younger than he. She was the daughter of Gardiner Greene Hubbard, a man who helped Bell with his research of the telephone.

Melville James Bell (1845-1870) and Edward Charles Bell (1848-1867) were the brothers of Alexander Graham Bell.
His father was a professor, as well as a elocutionist. I'm not sure if this provided a living for Alexander Graham Bell.

Throughout his life, Alexander Graham Bell showed interest in both vocal and instrumental music through his research and his inventions. As a teenager he taught music at his Scottish school, Weston House Academy. Later, in Canada, he designed a transmitting-piano as part of his experiments in… the electrical transmission of sound. Bell would have had a great deal of exposure to classical music as well as to other types of performance music; I am not aware of specific preferences but with luck another contributor can expand on this.

Alexander Graham Bell was born on 3 March 1847 in Edinburgh, Scotland and educated there and in London. His father and grandfather were both authorities on elocution and at the age of 16 Bell himself began researching the mechanics of speech. In 1870, Bell emigrated with his family to Canada, and th…e following year he moved to the United States to teach. There he pioneered a system called visible speech, developed by his father, to teach deaf//without speech children. In 1872 Bell founded a school in Boston to train teachers of the deaf. The school subsequently became part of Boston University, where Bell was appointed professor of vocal physiology in 1873. He became a naturalised U.S. citizen in 1882. (MORE)

Alexander Graham Bell (March 3, 1847 - August 2, 1922) was an eminent scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator who is credited with inventing the first practical telephone. Bell's father, grandfather, and brother had all been associated with work on elocution and speech, and both his mother and …wife were deaf, profoundly influencing Bell's life's work.  His research on hearing and speech further led him to experiment with hearing devices which eventually culminated in Bell being awarded the first U.S. patent for the telephone in 1876.  In retrospect, Bell considered his most famous invention an intrusion on his real work as a scientist and refused to have a telephone in his study.  Many other inventions marked Bell's later life, including groundbreaking work in optical telecommunications, hydrofoils and aeronautics. In 1888, Alexander Graham Bell became one of the founding members of the National Geographic Society.  (MORE)

Alexander Graham Bell Physicist, born in Edinburgh, Scotland, 3 March 1847. He is a son of Alexander Melville Bell, mentioned below, and was educated at the Edinburgh high school and Edinburgh University, receiving special training in his father's system for removing impediments in speech. He re…moved to London in 1867, and entered the University there, but left on account of his health, and went to Canada with his father in 1870. In 1872 he took up his residence in the United States, introducing with success his father's system of deaf-mute instruction, and became professor of vocal physiology in Boston University. He had been interested for many years in the transmission of sound by electricity, and had devised many forms of apparatus for the purpose, but the first public exhibition of his invention was at Philadelphia in 1876. Its complete success has made him wealthy. His invention of the "photophone," in which a vibratory beam of light is substituted for a wire in conveying speech, has also attracted much attention, but has never been practically used. It was first described by him before the American association for the advancement of science in Boston, 27 August 1880. After the shooting of President Garfield, Professor Bell, together with Sumner Tainter, experimented with an improved form of Hughes's induction balance, and endeavored to find the exact location of the ball, but failed. Professor Bell has put forth the theory that the present system of educating deaf-mutes is wrong, as it tends to restrict them to one another's society, so that marriages between the deaf are common, and therefore the number of deaf-mute children born is on the increase. His latest experiments relate to the recording of speech by means of photographing the vibrations of a jet of water. He is a member of various learned societies, and has published many scientific papers. He has lived for some time in Washington, District of Columbia. Hope this helped By Anonymous (MORE)
it was melville and edward they both died melville died in 1870 MAY 28 AND EDWARD DIED IN 1876 MAY 17
It allowed for people to contact people far away very quickly. It also made it so you didn't have to know Morse code as you would if you wanted to use a telegraph.
Marian died of old age and Elise die of being shot in the back of the head by the way i am not sure if she got shot in the head that is what someone told me.

Thanks to Bell we have phones. Without phones companies and people would have a harder time and there would be no internet. The first internet was over the phone lines. My bet is that you have a cell phone on or you are using it to ask this question. I rest my case.
Besides being the inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell also had influences in helping those who were deaf. Because of his experiences being around deaf people and his mother who was hard of hearing, he championed helping those who could not get a good education simply because they were d…eaf. (MORE)
