Who Invented the Telephone?

On June 15, 2002, the US Congress officially recognizes Antonio Meucci as the inventor of the telephone in 1860, not Alexander Graham Bell, as so far claimed. In 1876 Alexander Graham Bell, who conducted experiments in the same laboratory where Meucci’s material had been stored, was granted the first telephone patent and was thereafter credited with inventing the telephone.
