Alexander Graham Bell is known for inventing the telephone. Bell was born in Scotland, emigrated first to Canada and then to the United States. Motivated by both his mother's and his wife's deafness, Bell worked as a teacher and private tutor for the hearing impaired. While working in Washington DC, Bell met and began a lifelong friendship with Helen Keller.
