From Inventing aviation
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Alexander Graham Bell was an inventor, whose aero work often dealt with kites, and patron of the Aerial Experiment Association with Glenn Curtiss.

Engineer-historian John Hamilton Parkin commented in his 1964 book Bell and Baldwin:

It has generally been considered that Bell's contribution to the development of aviation was indirect and to be found in the opportunities, encouragement, and support he gave to others. However, it is abundantly clear from the records that his own technical and scientific contributions and his own guidance and criticism were infinitely more important.[1]
