The Chester Carlson Story

The photocopying process (Known as xerography) was invented by Chester Carlson, the founder of Xerox, in 1938. When Chester Carlson died in 1968, his net worth was estimated by Forbes magazine at over $100,000,000, an amazing fortune at the time. The reality was that he had very little money. He had shared it all with charity and remains one of the 20th century’s greatest philanthropists.
