George Eastman was born on July 12, 1854, in Waterville, New York, the fourth of nine children of George Washington Eastman and Maria Kilbourn.

He was an average student and did not excel in sports.

In 1869, at the age of 15, Eastman began working as an office boy for an insurance company in Rochester. He soon showed an aptitude for bookkeeping and was promoted to clerk. In 1874, he went to work for the Rochester Savings Bank. He rose quickly through the ranks, becoming assistant cashier in 1877 and vice president in 1881.

In 1884, at the age of 30, Eastman quit his job at the bank and founded the Eastman Dry Plate Company. The company’s main product was a new type of photographic plate that made it possible to take pictures without using a wet collodion process. The company was successful, and Eastman soon became wealthy.

In 1888, Eastman invented the Kodak camera, which made photography accessible to amateurs. The Kodak camera was a simple box camera that came with a roll of film that could be sent back to the factory to be developed and printed. Eastman’s company became one of the largest manufacturers of cameras and film in the world.

In 1902, Eastman founded the Kodak Research Laboratory, where he and his staff developed many new photographic products and processes. Among their achievements were the development of color film and the first x-ray photograph.

In 1932, at the age of 78, Eastman retired from active management of his company. He remained its chairman of the board until his death in 1932.

Eastman was a generous philanthropist. He donated millions of dollars to education, medical research, and other causes. He also established the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, which houses one of the world’s largest collections of photographic equipment and artifacts.

George Eastman was a shy and private man. He never married or had children. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on March 14, 1932, at his home in Rochester.
