Alexander Graham Bell's story is more complicated. Born in Scotland, he eventually emigrated to Canada. Later he was in Boston and performed experiments which led to the telephone in both Brantford, Ontario, and Boston. It appears the first working model was in Boston. Eventually Bell set up a lab in Baddeck, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, and spent time in both the US and at Baddeck. He became a US citizen. It appears both Canada and the US can claim the telephone. The Wikipedia article is a bit unclear about some of the details of this: Alexander Graham Bell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
