George Eastman was in an expansive mood in 1919: With the Great War over, he set about broadening Kodak's welfare programs, Rochester's music scene, and even his own home. Eastman also found a new favorite region to take his summer vacations. Jesse Peers, archivist for the George Eastman Legacy Collection, shares what was on Eastman's mind a hundred years ago and how Kodak became a pioneer in industrial relations.
