Alexander Graham Bell was born at Edinburgh, Scotland. Bell was an originator of social change whose inventions — foremost, the telephone — addressed the challenges of time and distance. Bell later worked on the photoelectric cell; a precursor to the iron lung; the desalination of seawater; and the phonograph. He also attempted to breed a "super race" of sheep from his home in Nova Scotia. Not your typical pet project.
