Eastman Dental Clinics in Europe

Bibby Library Launches New Archival Exhibit

We are pleased to bring you a collection of images depicting George Eastman’s establishment of dental clinics in London, Paris, Rome, Brussels and Stockholm during the 1920’s and 1930’s.

Eastman Dental BrusselsSimilar in architecture and purpose, the clinics illustrate Eastman’s desire for  indigent children to have access to dental treatment and to be taught preventive care.

Eastman’s representative and the first director of the Rochester Dental Dispensary, Dr. Harvey Burkhart, and his family traveled to Europe frequently during this time and often met with royalty and other foreign dignitaries.

The collection may be viewed at the Bibby library website.  Print images are stored in the Bibby archives for preservation.
