Author Biography
Betty Crocker Editors (Created by)
Betty Crocker, 1921 In 1921, Betty Crocker was created because of a contest that was part of a promotion for Gold Medal Flour. The company needed a name to sign to the letter, accompanying the prize of flour sack pincushions, sent to the thousands of customers that successfully completed a puzzle. They chose the family name of an early director of the Company, William G. Crocker, and the name Betty for its warm and approachable feel. The signature was voted the most distinctive of several submitted by female employees. The pincushion promotion set off a flood of inquiries for reliable and creative cooking advice.

In the 1930's and 1940's, Betty Crocker published the meal-planning booklet "Meal Planning on a Limited Budget" and used the booklets and the radio to provide helpful hints to homemakers to make the most of war rationed foods.

In 1945, Betty Crocker was pronounced the "First Lady of Food," in a survey of best-known women in America, following First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. In 1947, the Betty Crocker Ginger Cake mix was introduced and the name was transformed into a brand name distinguishing a nationally distributed family of products. The growing line of baking mix was an instant hit. In the 1950's, the red spoon logo appeared on the cake mixes and became one of the most recognized brand logos in the world and is a symbol of quality, convenience and reliability. It was also during this time that Betty Crocker moved on to television, hosting her own programs and appearing on many others.
