Stuber, the son of a Civil War photographer, operated a studio in Louisville in the 1880's and '90's. His reputation as a plate-maker brought him to the attention of George Eastman, for whom he headed the emulsion laboratories and was instrumental in the development of the celluloid film for Edison's motion picture camera. He was the third president of Eastman Kodak, and later chairman of the board.
