Graham Bell’s Voice Heard For First Time In 128 Years

WASHINGTON (TIP): Hear my voice, I’m Graham Bell! Telephone pioneer Alexander Graham Bell’s voice has been identified for the first time on a wax disc recording from 1885, researchers claim. Bell’s voice was recorded on to the disc on April 15, 1885 at his Volta laboratory in Washington. On the wax-disc recording, the inventor of the telephone says: “Hear my voice, Alexander Graham Bell.” The inventions of Bell — most famously the telephone but also the methods of recording sound — have allowed many people to hear each other’s voices for more than 130 years. Until now, no one knew what the inventor himself sounded like. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, through a collaborative project with the Library of Congress and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, has identified Bell’s voice for the first time.
