Born this day in 1854
George Eastman
Father of KODAK

Widely credited with saying, in 1888, "you push the button, we do the rest." 

In his final two years Eastman was in intense pain caused by a disorder affecting his spine. On March 14, 1932 Eastman shot himself in the heart, leaving a note which read, "To my friends: my work is done. Why wait?"
