Alexander Graham Bell, a Scotsman, in 1875. Bell was born and educated in Edinburgh, but settled in America. Some of his earlier experiments were carried out at Brantford in Canada, and Bell himself described this town as " the birthplace of the telephone." He continued his experiments when he became professor of vocal physiology in the University of Boston, and it was in this city that human speech was transmitted clearly over wires for the first time on March 10th, 1876.
