Alexander Graham Bell (March 3, 1847-August 2, 1922) was a Scottish scientist and inventor who immigrated to Canada.

In celebration of his birthday, Google has put up a colorful tribute logo:

Alexander Graham Bell

I think it’s awesome how Google does these creative themed logos to help remember various people, places and things.

Today, Bell is widely considered one of the foremost developers of the telephone, together with Antonio Meucci, inventor of the first telephone prototype, and Philipp Reis.

Six years after having obtained his telephone patent, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States.

In addition to Bell’s work in telecommunications technology, he was responsible for important advances in aviation and hydrofoil technology.
