A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Telecommunicaions Collection - Alexander Bell, born in Scotland, moved to Newfoundland in 1870 for health reasons. He lectured on "speech" in the manner of his famous father, and founded the "School of Vocal Physiology". He experimented with electrical equipment and tuning forks which led to the "harmonic telegraph", a simple but technically daunting idea. In 1874, at William's Machine Shop, he met 20 year old Thomas Watson who was adept at transforming Bell's mental images into working devices. On March 10 Bell was working with a sulfuric acid method of turning sound into electrical signals in one room and Watson was working with a balky and malfunctioning armature in another room when he suddenly heard Bell's urgent voice perfectly, "Mr. Watson, come here, I want you!" He was startled, and rushing to the other room, discovered Bell had splashed acid on himself. Watson's chance armature malfunction proved to be a significant piece to the puzzle, and the rest is history. Today satellites carry an increasing load of worldwide communications. With pagers, cell phones, digital direct TV transmission, fax machines, the only question is what is next in the world of Telecommunications. "My late friend, Alexander Graham Bell, whose world-famed invention annihilated time and space, brought the human family in closer touch." Thomas Edison
