      On October 28, 1917, just 6 months after the United States entered World War I, President Woodrow Wilson communicated to the public the criticality of food conservation: “To provide an adequate supply of food for both our own soldiers on the other side of the seas and for the civil populations and the armies of the Allies, is one of our first and foremost obligations; for, if we are to maintain their constancy in this struggle for the independence of all nations, we must first maintain their health and strength. The solution to our food problem, therefore, is dependent upon the individual service of every man, woman, and child in the United States.” This speech was delivered just 1 week after the founding of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics,
      At the time of its founding, the Academy was called the American Dietetic Association. Though many of the images in this article include the branding of the original name, it will be referred to as the Academy throughout the text of this article.

      an effort largely motivated by the belief that the most qualified individuals to head up the food conservation efforts were those “who are trained and especially fitted to feed [as many people as possible] in the best possible manner.”
