Answers to Today Quiz

1. Mozart (1790)

2. Alexander Graham Bell (1876 - in fact the full background to the invention of the telephone is quite complex. Antonio Meucci filed a patent caveat in December 1874, which described voice communication by wire. He renewed the caveat for two years, but then let it lapse in 1874 due to lack of funds. On February 14, 1876, Elisha Gray filed a patent caveat for transmitting human voice through a telegraph circuit - essentially a telephone. Alexander Graham Bell apparently saw the patent before it was processed and submitted his own the same day. )
