Additional Information: 

The National Poultry, Butter and Egg Association (NPBEA) gained public notice in 1906 for their support of what became the Pure Food and Drug Act.  At the time, the association was called the National Poultry and Game Association. The Chicago-based NPBEA, lamented the extinction of the turkey and lobbied the US Congress to save it in the early 1920s. By the 1937 convention, the NPBEA had ridden out the Great Depression and looked towards the future. It focused on helping its constituents until the 1960s.
