Kodak bought the Blair company in 1899, and made many cameras using the name Hawkeye, including the Baby Hawkeye, a small box camera.

The Baby Hawk-Eye is a box camera made by Blair in about 1896. It has a wooden body with leather covering, and makes twelve 2x2½ inch pictures on daylight-loading roll film.[1][2] The camera has a brilliant finder and an everset 'T' and 'I' shutter.[2] McKeown describes it as similar to Kodak's Pocket Kodak cameras of the same time.[1]
