George Eastman expresses unwillingness to enter into proposed plan
Typed Letter Signed: "Geo Eastman", 1p, 8½x7¼. Rochester, N.Y., 1912 December 13. On Eastman Kodak Company letterhead to Mr. H. N. Marvin, New York City. In full: "I have received yours of the 12th, which crossed mine of yesterday to Mr. Philipp in which I stated reasons which would be a bar to my going into the plan as at present laid out. I should be very glad if some change could be made in the plans which would overcome these objections, which all come under one head, the antagonizing of our customers. Yours very truly." 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 soiled. Light horizontal and vertical folds, one of each touching signature. "G" of signature slightly smudged. Overall, fine condition.
