George Eastman sends a letter indicating he is too busy to answer questions
Typed Letter Signed: "Geo Eastman", 1p, 8½x7¼. Rochester, N.Y., 1923 December 15. On Eastman Kodak Company letterhead to Reverend Ralph S. Cushman, Rochester, N.Y. In full: "I am in receipt of your letter of December 14th and regret very much that my engagements are such that I am unable to devote the time that would be necessary to answer your question. Sincerely yours." 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 and soiled. Horizontal and vertical folds cross signature. Overall, fine condition.
