Hear Alexander Graham Bell Speak from the 1880’s
April 25th, 2013 by Graham Bell
A dramatic application of digital technology has allowed researchers to recover Alexander Graham Bell’s voice from a recording held by the Smithsonian—a breakthrough announced for the first time. From the 1880s on, until his death in 1922, Bell gave an extensive collection of laboratory materials to the Smithsonian Institution, where he was a member of the Board of Regents. The donation included more than 400 discs and cylinders Bell used as he tried his hand at recording sound. Bell today is credited with the invention of the phonograph record which replaced Edison’s cylinder recordings.
