René Dagron


French photographer and inventor, he was granted the first microfilm patent in history, on 21 June 1859. Dagron is also considered the inventor of the miniature photographic jewels (French: Bijoux photographiques microscopiques) known as Stanhopes because a modified Stanhope lens is used to view the microscopic picture attached to the lens. Dagron died on 13 June 1900 at age 83.
