Items like vintage prints from Ansel Adams. Also, film classics like The Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind. Many Hollywood stars like Martin Scorsese use the Eastman House to store films. "We are trying to store an infinite collection in a fixed space. It's a complicated thing to do," said Gustavson. A large section of the vault is reserved for items from The Eastman Kodak Patent Collection. Nearly every Kodak camera ever made is being preserved here. The Kodak Company has donated many items to the museum. Over the years designers and engineers also set things aside. Plus, countless individuals have donated items. Curators don't usually accept duplicates. Gustavson said, "It's sort of like a never ending list of amazing products that have rolled out of Rochester."
