Famous people through collectibles: Alexander Bell

These days we can not imagine our lives without phones. It is a part of everyone and often even a defining factor for a person. Alexander Graham Bell, a scientist and inventor, was born on March 3, 1847. He is mostly known for his invention of the telephone.

There are many stamps and other collectibles, which were dedicated to Alexander Bell. Many collectibles usually have illustrations of his portrait or the telephone to celebrate his invention. You can find these collectibles on Colnect.

Alexander Bell was born in Scotland and later moved to Canada. There he began his career as an elocution teacher. Even though the telephone was Bell's most famous invention, his contributions to the world don't end there.

Both his mother and wife were deaf. This influenced his interest towards transmission devices leading to his various inventions. Later his interests shifted towards researching experimental forms of boats known as hydrofoils.
