GEORGE EASTMAN
George Eastman sends letter confirming address where he can be reached while fishing in Quebec
Typed Letter Signed: "Geo Eastman," 1p, 8½x7¼. Eastman Kodak Company, Rochester, N.Y., 1912 June 27. To Mr. H.N. Marvin, Biograph Company, New York City. In full: "This is to confirm the address that I gave you over the telephone: Red Camp, Grand Cascapedia, Province of Quebec, Canada. If you should want to wire me the telegraphic address is the same as the postal except that telegrams should be marked 'via New Richmond.' Would you have any objection to sending to me at Rochester a list showing the location of the General Film Company's exchanges?" D.W. Griffith was director at Biograph Studios from 1908-1913, where he pioneered film techniques such as close-up, cross-cutting, fade-in and fade-out, pan shots, soft focus, etc. Eastman was going on a fishing vacation and wanted to keep in touch with Biograph Studios, which was obviously using Kodak film in their cameras. The Grand Cascapedia River in the Gaspé region of Quebec is one of the world's finest Atlantic salmon rivers. Eastman was an avid fisherman. In the collection of the George Eastman House, Rochester, New York, is a salmon reel made by Edward vom Hofe. Brothers Julius and Edward vom Hofe made many fishing reels for Eastman with red script lettering "George Eastman" on the reel itself and an engraved "G.E." silver tag on the leather case. American inventor and manufacturer GEORGE EASTMAN (1854-1932) revolutionized the photography industry with his inventions of flexible film (1884) and the inexpensive Kodak box camera (1888). He entered the photographic plate-making business in 1880 after inventing a machine to coat glass plates. The mass production of his dollar Brownie camera in 1900 made photography available to children. Eastman's philanthropic gifts to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Rochester (New York) and the Eastman School of Music, which he founded, exceeded $100 million. Lightly creased. Folds, 1 touches the "s" in Eastmen. Otherwise, fine condition.
