Meanwhile, in 1881 Berliner had married Cora Adler with whom he had six children. Having developed an improvement to Bell’s great invention, Berliner set out to perfect another Bell invention, the graphophone. This device was itself an improvement on Edison’s method for recording and playing sound, which was via an etched groove in a tinfoil disk. The graphophone substituted a rotating wax cylinder for the disk, and used a stylus to cut a deep groove rather than etch a shallow one. Unfortunately, the graphophone cut grooves in the cylinder vertically, which made it difficult to maintain a steady pressure on the stylus as it either cut the grooves or repro- duced sounds from the cylinder, thus leading to distortions in the recording.

Bell did not return to this line of inquiry until 1874, when he received permission from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to use its laboratories at night. He was assisted by Thomas A. Watson, a skilled mechanic, and financed by the parents of two students, including Gardiner Hubbard, his future father-in-law. At first Bell concentrated on sending multiple telegraph messages by causing electrical undulations similar to those caused by the vocal chords. In 1875 he received a patent for the harmonic telegraph, then turned his attention to developing the telephone.
