Summary

Five page typed guest list titled 'Research Divisions Golden Jubilee, List of Guests with Affiliation'. This was found inside a booklet celebrating the 50 Year Golden Jubilee of Kodak Limited's Research Division at Harrow, England, in 1978.

This guest list includes Dr Nellie Fisher, originally from Kodak Research Division at Harrow and later head of research at Kodak Australasia in Melbourne, Australia.

This item is part of a collection of research material and artefacts assembled by former Kodak Australasia employee Nigel Beale while he was writing Kodak Australasia's company history in the 1980's. An invitation list for the Golden Jubilee Dinner in Harrow, kept as a memento with this booklet, shows that Nigel Beale was invited, but could not attend.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical, educational, defence, scientific and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
