Here's an interesting piece of history with a bunch of black and white photos written by the National Geographic. A piece that covers the human side on the life and adventurous times of Mabel Gardiner Hubbard (late deafened at age 5) who was married to Alexander Graham Bell. What sealed the National Geographic relationship with the Bell family was that Mable and Alexander G. Bell had two daughters together named Elsie and Daisy where Elsie grew up and married Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor who was National Geographic magazine’s first editor-in-chief. That solidified the family ties with the National Geographic company.
