I found this booklet when I moved into our old 100 yr. old farm house in Illinois. Published by the IL State Council of Defense (no date but Dwight H. Green was Governor). It has great advice on all phases from planning to storage. Big letters: "Waste Not: Want Not!" It also came with a centerfold: A Victory Garden for a Family of Five. There is nothing in the booklet that isn't applicable today. Today, many Master Gardeners volunteer their hours at public gardens which are giving back to communities, food banks, and inner city residents. Just another version of a Victory Garden.
