On this day (September 4) in 1888, North American entrepreneur George Eastman obtained a patent on his new camera (Patent No. 388,850), and the word “Kodak” was registered as a trademark (Reg. No. 15,825). Check out the evolution of the Kodak logo here. (P.S.: The oldest U.S. registered trademark still in use is this one (Reg. No. 11,210), which depicts the Biblical figure Samson wrestling a lion. That trademark was registered in 1884 by the J.P. Tolman Company.)
