What people don't know much about Alexander Bell is that him and his family heavily contributed to the deaf community. Bell spent his entire life studying the physiology of speech. He became interested in the lessons and learned a value from them. So in 1872, he opened a school for the deaf in Boston called Vocal physiology and Mechanics of speech for deaf students" Helen Keller was one of his famous students. He described sign language as an "essestinal for foreign language" and also argued that " In an English speaking country like the United States, the English language and the English language alone should be used as the means of of communication and instruction at least in schools supported at public expenses". Bell was always associating with a deaf community and was very familiar in the deaf world. With other of his experiments, Bell was involved in campaigns for the deaf encouraging their integration with society with the help of lip reading and other techniques, In 1890, Bell founded The Alexander Graham Bell association for the deaf.
