In 1931, a microfilm camera was patented by New York City banker, George L. McCarthy (U.S. No. 1,806,763). He developed the first practical commercial microfilm use in the 1920's and was issued a patent in 1925 for his Checkograph machine, designed to make permanent film copies of all bank records to deter fraud.
