American technology company founded by George Eastman, who "was one of the first to successfully mass-produce dry plates for photographers and then put the first simple camera into the hands of a world of consumers in 1888. In so doing, he made a cumbersome and complicated process easy to use and accessible to nearly everyone." -Kodak website (http://www.kodak.com/ek/US/en/Our_Company/History_of_Kodak/Milestones_-_chronology/Milestones-_chronology.htm)
