A young man from Missouri...
We think every face tells a story. What was this young man's story?
When he turned 16, he had the most incredible dream. Not a typical dream of a 16-year old boy (you know - fishing and hunting, and whatever other things typical 16 year old boys dream about), but a dream of a strange device that allowed people from all over the world to communicate with each wherever they were. He striped wires off of the fences, tore apart his mother's fruit crates for the lumber, borrowed one of those newfangled dry cell batteries from the town hall, and began assembling this vision. Since his gadget was powered by the dry cell battery, he thought he might call it a "cell phone". He was a man ahead of his time.
