Today, as a museum of photography, it is a living memorial to him. Here visitors may inspect the old cameras and paraphernalia of photography's past and trace its development to the present. Many of Eastman's possessions-books, furniture, and paintings by old masters-remain for all to see. The museum, a mecca for picture enthusiasts, drew 250,000 visitors in 1953. School children often attend in groups, supplementing classroom studies (page 438).
