Actually, there really never was a Betty Crocker! She was a brand name and tradmark that was first developed back in 1921, by the Washburn Crosby Company. It was their way of creating a persona to answer questions asked by their consumers. The story goes that they chose Betty as her first name because it sounded all-American and cheery. Betty's last name was that of William Crocker, one of the directors of Washburn Crosby.
Even though Betty Crocker wasn't a real person, remember that those Betty Crocker recipes are among the most popular out there, and they are tried and true. In fact, the original Betty Crocker Cookbook was first published in 1950, as the Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook. Most of us know this ubiquitous tome by its current name, and it's likely that you know at least one person who has one in her household.
