Answer.

    Alexander Graham Bell was a person of great wisdom and kindness. He understood Helen's likes and dislikes and stayed by her side in all tough situations. Bell advised Helen's parents to send her to attend speech classes at the Horace Mann School for the Deaf in Boston. And his advice had definitely given the fruit of a strong base to Helen in her career. Again it was on Dr.Bell's advice that Helen's father wrote Mr.Anagnos  and found Miss Anne Sullivan, a dedicated, understanding and caring teacher, to teach Helen. One of the most memorable times of Helen's life has always been the World Fair. Helen had learnt many things in this fair, thanks to Dr.Bell. He patiently taught the working of every single exhibit and helped in developing Helen's interest towards machines and technology. This was especially in the case of him explaining the way in which diamonds are mined to Helen.  Helen notes that Dr.Bell was a humorous person and a poet with an unlimited love for children, especially for the deaf. No wonder Helen has dedicated her book to Dr.Alexander Graham Bell. The dedication reads, "TO ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL; Who has taught the deaf to speak and enabled the listening ear to hear speech from the Atlantic to the Rockies, I DEDICATE This Story of My Life."

Dr. Alexander Graham Bell was an inventor and a teacher of the deaf. Helen met him for the first time in Washington in the year 1886. This meeting was not only the beginning of a long friendship between Dr. Bell and Helen but it also proved to be the foundation of Helens education and life. In fact, Helen has dedicated her autobiographyThe Story of My Lifeto him. Helen mentions his sympathetic and tender nature that made her love him from her first visit itself. It was on his suggestion that Helens father wrote to Mr. Anagnos and subsequently found Miss Sullivan as a teacher. Helen and Miss Sullivan were accompanied by Dr. Bell on their visit to the Worlds Fair in 1893. Helen also visited him at his home and laboratory. He appears to be a wonderful and patient teacher who could instil enthusiasm and interest in his students through his delightful explanations. Helen notes that Dr. Bell was a humourous person and a poet as well. Another endearing quality of Dr. Bell was his love for children, particularly the deaf.
