- The photographer Sherman Fairchild was born in 1896 in Oneonta, New York. He was contracted by the government to develop a camera for aerial photography; such cameras already existed but produced highly distorted photographs due to slow shutter speeds which could not keep up with the movement of the flying plane. Fairchild developed a camera where the shutter was placed inside the lens which allowed the camera to be fast enough to produce photographs with minimal distortion. After World War I the Army made his cameras their standard aerial cameras.
