Dedicated to “Alexander Graham Bell”
This cache is dedicated to Alexander Graham Bell who invented the telephone.
He was born on March 3, 1847 in Edinburgh, Scotland and came to America in April 1871 and he begins teaching the deaf in Boston. In 1874 he meets Thomas Watson who is an electrician by trade and starts working with Bell on a regular basis. Alexander Graham Bell has been working on this idea for several years.
On March 10, 1876 Bell uttered the first famous words on his telephone to Thomas Watson who was in the next room.
“Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you”
