The 1932 Suicide Note of George Kodak.

Goerge Kodak was the Eastman Kodak founder and inventor of the roll film. He killed himself in 1932 and as you can seen, his suicide note cuts right to the chase: “To my friends. My work is done. Why wait?”

Letters of Note points out: “On the evening of March 14, Eastman, gathered a group of his friends at his home in order to witness a change of his will. Eastman was 77 years of age, and for the past few years had seen his health decline rapidly… Later that evening, with the task complete, he asked his friends to leave and retired to his bedroom where, moments later, he was found dead with a gunshot wound to his chest.”
