Alexander Graham Bell’s voice identified in 130-year-old wax audio recording at Smithsonian


Alexander Graham Bell

Researchers have identified the voice of Alexander Graham Bell for the first time in some of the earliest audio recordings held at the Smithsonian Institution.

The National Museum of American History announced Wednesday that Bell’s voice was identified with help from technicians at the Library of Congress and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California. The museum holds some of the earliest audio recordings ever made.

Researchers found a transcript of one recording signed by Bell. It was matched to a wax disc recording from April 15, 1885.

“Hear my voice, Alexander Graham Bell,” the inventor said. ...

I never said the Smithsonian was a Christian organization, for that matter as I pointed A.G. Bell wasn't either. I guess the comment would be, so?

The U.S. government isn't a Christian organization. It was started really as a Masonic Republic, Thank God! There is nothing worse than a Theonomy/ Christian Reconstructionism. (I would suggest that you download An Evaluation of Theonomic Neopostmillennialism It might be easier to download the whole article by Dr. Ice since the site itself isn't that speedy and doesn't seem to work easily for online reading. ) You'll get most of the ideas from Dr. Ice's The Unscriptural Theologies Of Amillennialism And Postmillennialism which will do a quite adequate job of explaining theonomy also and it isn't a pdf file nor as long as the first example.

Jim.

You should look into it.

The Smithsonian is not a Christian organization. They are against the truth.

Cezar, you mean that Smithsonian National Board is some sort of cabal! The Smithsonian while have a fairly close relationship with the Federal govt. is still considered a private institution.

I think the Vatican is still ticked off at a lot of people in Washington when they sent a stone to put in the Washington Monument and the (Free Masons?) masons lost it. But the ever since Ronnie Regan officially recognized the Vatican, and the continual attendance of politicians to 6 Supreme Court Justices Attend Catholic Service Red Mass. We need to keep an eye on them.

By the way paying a little attention to the thread, Alex Bell, became a Unitarian. He knew a lot more about telephones than he did Christianity.

Matthew 28
19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."---NASB

The Smithsonian is guilty of suppressing the truth.

They have taken artifacts and dumped them into the ocean and probably hid others elsewhere. Possibly the Vatican.

Jim, some of the Scots still speak Gaelic, and to hear them speak English you'd think they were foreigners.

John UK and Pict, I don't think I have that much problem with the Scottish accent, some of our best imports were from Scotland, I'm talking about people, e.g., Andrew Carnegie, not whiskey.

Yes, on accents, hmm, Do you remember the BBC show, "All Creatures Great and Small?" It was a show about veterinarians, I'm sorry to say some of those people I wish they had subtitles on them, so I could have known what they said, whatever they were speaking, it wasn't English.

Actually, Mike...that's a great point. Not unlike a cheap microphone that will cause any voice to sound much different than in person. I can't imagine the distortion that a recording from a wax disc would cause.

Why does it matter? We have plenty of Spurgeon's thoughts in writing; why should we care what his voice sounded like? In any case, early recordings have serious frequency distortion (bandpass effects), so the recording of Bell is not necessarily what he sounded like in person.
I like to imagine Spurgeon could be reasonably well played in the movies by John Rhys-Davies.

Very cool. Boy, it is just amazing how far technology had come in, oh, say, 150 years or so. Technology took off like Jumpin' Jack flash...seemingly all of a sudden. I always wonder how so many things came to be and how they were even thought of. Think about it...what the Earth has to offer: dirt, water, minerals (basically fancy stones), precious metals, trees, flowers, weeds, oil, natural gas, coal. I'm sure I am missing a few things but isn't it incredible that every single thing we have today is created using these elements. Going back to the very basics, I always wonder how specific ideas were conceived, and from there, I wonder how or where they got the knowledge to impliment their ideas using these very basic elements.that the Earth has to offer. A paperclip...no problem but look at all of the high tech, etc that we have at our disposal today. Also, how did we learn to harness x-rays, gamma rays, radio waves, micro waves, work with photons, neutrons, atoms, magnetic fields, and on, and on, and on.

You're quite correct, Neil, this recording isn't in high fidelity or stereo. Be thankful he wasn't singing. (The reason is given in the article, besides the audio file. )
It sounds Scotty to me, but for a sermon on numerology it was a bit repetitive.

Yes US you are quite correct. The UK may be very tiny, but often people can be discerned as to their county by their characteristic accent.

I dunno, I think it would be neat to hear his voice as even his wife made fun of his accent. (don't all people from UK have an accent?) - sorry John
