George Eastman was born in Waterville, New York, USA.

He was a major philanthropist, establishing the Eastman School of Music, schools of dentistry, and medicine at the University of Rochester. In addition he made major donations to Tuskegee and Hampton universities, historically black universities in the South. The George Eastman House, now operated as the International Museum of Photography and Film, has been designated a National Historic Landmark.
