“Mr. Watson – come here. I want to see you.” These are the famous first words that were spoken over a telephone line when Alexander Graham Bell made the first call to his assistant in 1867. And that was the beginning of National Telephone Day!
While Alexander Graham Bell already has his own day on March 7, National Telephone Day is here to show appreciation for the creativity and ingenuity shown by not only Bell, but also so many of his contemporaries. It’s a time to pay respect and honor to so many inventors who never stop pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the world!
