Bell also taught in many different places for the deaf like Clarke school.*Signing to Billy Butchcroft IIIOne of his students was Mabel Hubbard, the daughter of Gardiner Greene Hubbard, the founder of Clarke school.They quickly became good friends and soon started working together in 1873Even while he was teaching, he was still doing research on how to transmit telegraph messages.In 1874, Alexander’s researching was so outstanding, he told Gardiner Hubbard about how he might be able to create a multiple telegraph.Hubbard believed in Alexander, Gardiner then gave Bell some financial money to work on his experiments.*Alexander asking Watson: “I think my research is working, I mean, everything makes sense.”*Hubbard replies: “Okay, I’ll see if I can lend you some money.”*Alexander: “thank you so much Mr. Hubbard!”In 1868 Joseph Stearns invented a device that could send 2 messages simultaneously on one wire.Thomas Edison made one that could transmit four, but Bell desired more. Once he was given the money, him and an electrician as his assistant, Thomas Watson, started working speech transmission.
