Alexander Graham Bell
It is one thing to be remembered for a single clever invention, quite another to have made worthwhile contributions in a broad range of disciplines. The overwhelming importance of Bell's invention of the articulate telephone overshadows many of his other contributions to the education of the deaf, aeronautics, telegraphy and marine engineering. lt is obvious that he was driven by strong humanitarian instincts to use the emerging technology for the benefits of society in general.
