Granville T. Woods was an inventor that helped with the creation of telephones. He was born in 1856 and later died in 1910, he was 54. I think he was a really great inventor. I say this because he helped shape the future of telephones. For example, he set the foundation for improvements of them (current time telephones). My question is to the author of the biography, were you inspired by Granville T. Woods?
