    Alexander Graham Bell patented the phone, perfected it, but the idea was first conceived by a german dude, don't remember his name....they said his phone was ok, but Bell's really worked.  There was a man named Gray who was said to have come up with the idea too, but Graham beat him to the patent office.  We have always been told that Graham invented it, truth be told, know one really knows....and the history books keep changing......

    George Drawbaugh of York Pa. He took his idea to Bell to get funding for a patent. Bell was wealthy not trustworthy.

    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.
