Alexander Graham Bell was a dreamer and wasn't content with the day-to-day grind. In fact, after inventing the phone and having available a life's work in his start-up Bell Telephone Company, he chose instead, a life of invention.

Although wealthy from monies earned from the telephone, Bell was very comfortable but not super-rich. His invention did not catapult him into the riches of the industrial tycoons and there were no "telephone heirs" such as with the Rockefellers or Fords.

This story of Alexander Graham Bell is not a comprehensive study by any means. It is simply an overview of the man and his life. I have divided the Bell story into three sections:

bullet Section one, Early years...1847-1875.
bullet Section two, "Telephone/marriage" years...1876-1880.
bullet Section three, Final years...1881-1922 

"Don't keep forever on the public road, going only where other have gone. Leave the beaten track occasionally and dive into the woods. You will be certain to find something you have never seen before."

Alexander Graham Bell
