Cook Book - Betty Crocker Picture Cook Book (1950)
Washburn Crosby Company
Betty Crocker was the invention of the Washburn Crosby Company, a flour milling business, in 1921. The name was created by the company as part of a jigsaw puzzle competition. "Crocker" was chosen to honor a popular and recently retired director of the company named William G. Crocker. "Betty" was chosen because it sounded friendly.
The Betty Crocker Picture Cook Book was first printed in 1950. The company is now on their 11th edition of the cook book.
