This is a photograph (colorized) of Jessie Hoover of the Department of Agriculture. She was a milk utilization specialist and pushed a national campaign to educate Americans that milk was nutritional with the slogan “better food, less expense.”
Miss Hoover lived at 1819 G. St NW, a block now dominated by office buildings like the World Bank.
