The Telephone Invention
Alexander Graham Bell and Elisha Gray both independently invented a device that translated speech to and from each other. Both of them wanted a patented but Alexander Graham Bell got the patented first. Both of them entered in a battle over the invention of the telephone, and Alexander won. The telephone and the telegraph were both wire-based electrical systems, Graham Bellís amazing success with the telephone came as a direct result of his actions to improve the telegraph. As soon as Graham Bell started experimenting with electrical items, the telegraph has been around for about 30 years. The telegraph, a highly successful system with its dot-to-and-dash Morse code was limited only to and from each other once. Bells good knowledge of the nature of sound and understanding of music enabled him to create the possibility of transmitting multiple messages all on the same wire at the same time.
By October 1874, Bells research finally paid off to the extent that he could inform his father-in-law. Various aspects of the communication have long been the subject of human study. In ancient Greece, the study of rhetoric, the art of effective speaking and persuasion was a vital subject for students. In the early 20th century, many experts began to study communication as a specific part of their academic disciplines. Communication studies began to emerge as a distinct academic field in the early 20th century. In 1914 the National Association of Academic Teachers of Public Speaking, now known as the National Communication Association, was founded.
