Birth of Alexander Graham Bell - March 3
Alexander Graham Bell was born on March 3, 1847 and died on August 2, 1922.
An eminent scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator, Bell is credited with inventing the first practical telephone.
Profound influences on Bell's life include Bell's father, grandfather, and brother who had all been associated with work on elocution and speech, and his mother and wife who were both deaf. His meticulous research on hearing and speech further led him to experiment with hearing devices, which eventually led Bell to being awarded the first U.S. patent for the telephone in 1876. Ironically, Bell considered the telephone as an intrusion on his real work as a scientist and refused to have his most famous invention in his study.

George Andrew Reisner (November 5, 1867 – June 6, 1942) was an American archaeologist of Ancient Egypt.

He was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and died in Giza, Egypt. Upon his studies at Jebel Barkal (The Holy Mountain), in Nubia he found the Nubian kings were not buried in the pyramids but outside of them. He also found the skull of a Nubian female (whom he thought was a king) which is in the collection of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard. Reisner believed that Kerma was originally the base of an Egyptian governor and that these Egyptian rulers evolved into the independent monarchs of Kerma. He also created a list of Egyptian viceroys of Kush. He found the tomb of Queen Hetepheres the mother of King Khufu (Cheops in Greek) who built the Great Pyramid at Giza. During this time he also explored mastabas.
