In Rochester, N.Y., the home built by the late George Eastman of the Eastman Kodak Company has been transformed into a public educational institute of photography with facilities for exhibitions, demonstrations, lectures, and the showing of motion pictures. Ceremonies attending the formal opening of the George Eastman House, as it is to be known, were held in Rochester November 9.
