Biography | show moreshow less
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. The year Eastman wrote this letter, the Eastman Kodak Company introduced motion picture film for "talkies". Thomas Edison had begun experimenting with a motion picture camera using Eastman's flexible film in the late 1880s, and Eastman's new invention led to greater acceptance of movies as entertainment - and greater profits for both Edison and Eastman.
