George Eastman was issued a patent September 4, 1888 for his box camera and trademarked the name “Kodak.” This is a Kodak ad from the early 20th century, from the National Museum of American History Library’s trade literature collection.  
The National Museum of American History has two of these box cameras from 1888: one with serial number 540 and the other with serial number 2443. You can also see the patent itself on the US Patent & Trademark Office site.
While the box camera may have ushered in an era of photography for the general masses, sadly no definitive answer has yet been given as to when the duck face became de rigueur.
