George Eastman was an American innovator who found Eastman Kodak Company to popularized the use of roll film, which help bring photography to mainstream, meaning making photography accessible to the public.
In his early years, He was the most outstanding philanthropists of the time, establishing the Eastman School of music, and school of dentistry and medicine at the University of Rochester in London. Later in his years, He contributed so much to the development of its notable research facilities while discouraging the formation of unions at his manufacturing plant and established paternal systems of support for his employees.
In his final two years, Eastman was in intense pain caused by a disorder affecting his spine.His spine condition may be due to a congenital disease.This caused him to go into depression and reduce him to function.Finally, Eastman shot himself in the heart, leaving his final words,"To my friends, my work is done - Why wait?" Upon his death, his entire estate was bequeathed to University of Rochester. The Eastman Quadrangle of the River Campus was named after him.
