William Kennedy Laurie Dickson was a Scottish inventor and groundbreaking filmmaker who devised an early motion picture camera while under the employment of Thomas Edison. In 1895 he founded the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company which was the first motion picture company devoted entirely to film production and exhibition. From late 1899 through mid 1900 Dickson was in South Africa filming scenes of the Boer War, often at the very front of the action. (Inventory #: 20980E)
