2 BELL, Alexander Graham). FULLER, R. Buckminster. EBER, Dorothy Harley. Genius at Work : Images of Alexander Graham Bell.
Nimbus, 1991, ISBN:092105467x 
(BELL, Alexander Graham). EBER, Dorothy Harley. Genius at Work : Images of Alexander Graham Bell. (Halifax) : Nimbus Publishing, (1991). Pp (6),7-192.Illustrated. Sq 8vo, maroon card covers. Prologue by R. Buckminster Fuller . Dorothy Margaret Harley Eber, CM (b. 1925, England). "In 1885, nine yearsafter his invention of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell and his wife, Mabel, paid a weekend visit to Baddeck on Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island.There they fell in love with the landscape, and soon returned to build the house and laboratory where Bell would spend his summers for the next thirt y-seven years. At Baddeck, Bell experimented in many fields, including the development of a successful hydrofoil. Less successful but equally spectacular were his efforts to construct an aircraft with tetrahedral cells in thewings allowing it to become airborne under its own power. Energetic, exube rant, occasionally eccentric, Bell was remembered with affection by friendsand neighbors in Baddeck. Dorothy Harley Eber learned of Bell's life from these same neighbors during summer visits to her cottage across the bay from his old home. In the course of many conversations, she recorded theri reminiscences not only of Bell but of a busy household that often included children and grandchildren, Bell's father and stepmother, and famous visitors -- among them Helen Keller, Anne Sullivan Macy, and SIr Wilfred Grenfell. With these interviews and exerpts from family journals, diaries, and letters, Dorothy Eber has woven an engaging, informal account of Bell's life and work on his Cape Breton headland." - from rear.
