The young Alexander Graham Bell wrote to his fiancée Mabel Hubbard on the night of their engagement:

“I am afraid to fall asleep, lest I should find it all a dream – so I shall lie awake and think of you.”

Alexander Graham Bell is known throughout the world as the inventor of the telephone and broke ground in the fields of medical science, aviation, and marine engineering. But instrumental in all of this was the advice, encouragement, and financial assistance of his wife Mabel. Deaf since the age of five, Mabel Hubbard Bell was fluent in multiple languages, the first woman to invest in the aviation industry in Canada, and an advocate for education and community development. Today, she is recognized as a person of national historic significance.

In Alec and I, you’ll learn about his inventions…through her voice. Alec and Mabel show us how the world can be changed by one’s love for another. Throughout lives marked by tragedy as well as triumph, they stood side by side, meeting the trials and tribulations of their lives together. Discover the depth of their love story in this multimedia presentation featuring artifacts, photographs, and stories from more than 45 years spent together.
