In 1880 William H. Walker founded the Wm. H. Walker and Company business, which was bought by W. F. Carlton in 1883 and renamed the Rochester Optical Company. In 1899 four other companies joined with Rochester Optical: the Rochester Camera and Supply Company (by H. B. Carlton, brother of W. F. Carlton); the Ray Camera Company; the Monroe Camera Company; and the Western Camera Manufacturing Company of Chicago. In 1903 the Rochester company was bought by Kodak Eastman, but continued to manufacture its line of cameras as the Rochester Optical Division of Kodak until 1921.
