Graham Bell - Patent for the Telephone
United States Patent No. 174,465,
issued to Alexander Graham Bell in 1876, became recognized as the "most
valuable patent." Yet early efforts to popularize the telephone were met
with disappointment. Though people paid to hear Bell lecture on "the miracle
discovery of the age," for a long time they seemed unaware of its possibilities.
