Effects of Immigration
The increase in population density promoted the market for invention based on the standards of an industrial city
Some of the most important invention included the typewriter, the telegraph, and the telephone
These advanced communication tremendously, especially considering the expansion of railroads at the time, enabling family and friends to stay in touch or visit when away from home for work
The telegraph was the first method of long-distance communication
Morgan and his first Volleyball team. They consisted mostly of businessmen.
The typewriter allowed for many clerical jobs that became open to women
Volleyball was invented in 1897 by the Holyoke YMCA director of physical activities William G. Morgan
He wanted it to be played anywhere and by anyone, even mill workers or middle-aged businessmen, as long as they had a ball, a net, and somewhere to tie it up

Volleyball is an example of how invention was fit to accommodate the lifestyle brought about by industry
