bell-telephone-company

This week, in 1837, we became a state.  And then a few short decades later… we had phones?! People in Detroit were the first in the nation to have assigned telephone numbers in 1879.  To put that in perspective, the American Civil War ended in 1865, most people were still using a horse and carriage, and Ford Motor Company wouldn’t introduce the Model T for another 29 years!

The Motor City can thank Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the first phone in 1876 and started the Bell Telephone Company a year later.  Pretty amazing.

Don’t forget:  in honor of Michigan’s 175th birthday this week, Michigan Mittens is holding a Giveaway of Michigan gifts, including a TMS vintage shirt. Sign up HERE.

Love,

Granville Woods 1856 – 1910—-Invented: A variation on the induction telegraph.

The magnitude of an inventors work can often be defined by the esteem in which he is held by fellow inventors. If this is the case, then Granville Woods was certainly a respected inventor as he was often referred to as the “Black Thomas Edison.” In 1885, Woods patented an apparatus which was a combination of a telephone and a telegraph. The device, which he called “telegraphony,” would allow a telegraph station to send voice and telegraph messages over a single wire. The device was so successful that he later sold it to the American Bell Telephone Company. In 1887, Woods developed his most important invention to date – a device he called Synchronous Multiplex Railway Telegraph. A variation of the “induction telegraph,” it allowed for messages to be sent from moving trains and railway stations. By allowing dispatchers to know the location of each train, it provided for greater safety and a decrease in railway accidents. Over the course of his life time Granville Woods would obtain more than 50 patents for inventions including an automatic brake and an egg incubator and for improvements to other inventions such as safety circuits, telegraph, telephone, and phonograph.

The telephone is the result of the work of many people. Indeed, Alexander Bell was the first to gain a patent over the technology in 1876; nevertheless, the title of inventor may very well belong to one of at least five other people.
Throughout the 1870s and 1880s, Bell and his new telecommunications company, the American Bell Telephone Company, became embroiled in a number of legal battles with the Western Union Telegraph Company. From the court records, the telegraph giant held several patents of their own, and wished to invalidate Bells. If they succeeded, Western Union “stood to become the worlds largest telecommunications monopoly”. While Western Union lost their legal battle by one vote in a 1888 Supreme Court decision, this did not stop them from becoming the first industrial communications empire of the late 19th century.

Today, Western Union exists as a way to wire virtual cash across countries. The American Bell Telephone Company on the other hand, continues to offer telecommunications services under the banner of the American Telephone & Telegraph Company, or AT&T.
