Storyline

Alexander Grham Bell's main invention enabled telephone and Internet technology, without which modern communication would still be unthinkable, if not the present world. First generation immigrant with his father and like him, he first aspired to help the deaf-mute like his mother, initially as a successful and innovative teacher. He fell in love with pupil Mabil, who seemed out of reach as daughter of wealthy lawyer Hubbard, but his future father in law proved a vital asset in challenging Western Union's telecommunication monopoly by inventing telephone technology, unlike their telegram almost unlimited in number of messages over one line. They hired a rival, Gray, to claim his patent, but he ultimately won the crucial trial. Written by KGF Vissers
