The chance meeting between Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Watson was one of the most fortuitous in technological history as they collaborated on ways to refine Bell's "harmonic telegraph." On March 10, 1876, as Bell and Watson set out to test their new invention, Bell knocked over battery acid being used in the experiment. Reacting to the spilled acid, Bell is alleged to have shouted, "Mr. Watson, come here. I want you!"
While history recognizes Bell and Watson being witness at one of the world's most important technological advances - the invention of the telephone - little attention has been given the presence of another key member of the team.
Namely, Alexander Graham Bell's Beard.
