Is Linda Eastman McCartney related to Eastman Kodak?
No relationship at all. Her family name was originally Epstein and was changed when her grandfather emigrated from Russia in the early 20th century. The Eastmans were involved in law and entertainment representation in and around Scarsdale, NY, where Linda grew up; Linda’s mother’s family had an interest in a clothing store chain in Queens for some years, and in that sense one might say that Linda is partial heir to a department store concern. Linda’s professional dabblings have been in photography, but this is as close as she gets to Eastman-Kodak.
