Caption: David Wesson (1861-1934), US food chemist. In 1899 Wesson developed a method for deodorising cottonseed oil enabling the first 100 per cent cottonseed oils and lards to be made. As a by-product of the cotton industry, cottonseed was cheap, making it the most popular cooking oil in the US at the start of the 20th century.
