On This Day



On This Day… The First Telephone Call In History?

Written by: George Chittenden : 08 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 10th March, back in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell made the first ever telephone call. The Scottish-born inventor was working in his lab and shouted into the mouthpiece a command for his assistant to come to him, as he wanted to see him.

When the assistant appeared, he declared that he’d heard and understood the message. Bell then asked him to repeat the sentence he’d heard which he did. Alexander Graham Bell, who’d been born into a family of speech instructors had used his electrical apparatus to transmit the sound of a human voice.

Whether Bell actually invented the telephone is debated, as a man named Antonio Meucci filed a caveat in 1871 for a voice communication device but couldn’t afford to renew it.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
