Antonio Meucci recognised as inventor of telephone

Antonio Meucci recognised as the inventor of the telephone.

11 June, 2002

On 11th June 2002, the US Congress recognised Antonio Meucci as the inventor of the telephone.

Meucci was as Italian inventor and associate of Giuseppe Garibaldi. Though he had submitted a patent caveat, he did not mention electromagnetic transmission of vocal sound in the document. Meucci had set up a voice-communication link in his Staten Island home where he connected the second-floor bedroom to his laboratory.

Later, Alexander Graham Bell, received a patent for the same. Another interesting this was that both Elisha Gray and Graham Bell had filed patents for the telephone on the very same day – 14th February 1876.
