Sorry, no etymologies found.
Two days after the first regulations of the Food Administration were announced, to hooverize appeared spontaneously in scores of newspapers, and a week later it was employed without any visible sense of its novelty in the debates of Congress and had taken on a respectability equal to that of to bryanize, to fletcherize and to oslerize.
The big Webster has hooverize, which it defines as "to economize especially in the use of food."
