Woods, a great African-American inventor, patented the Synchronous Multiplex Railway Telegraph, making it possible for moving trains to communicate with other trains and train stations. This ground-breaking technology greatly improved railway safety and efficiency, bringing people closer together in the vast United States. It was such an important breakthrough that Alexander Graham Bell, inven- tor of the telephone, purchasedit for use at his company. Woods believed the same thing we believe--that connections between people make the world go 'round.
