Donald Watson was the founder of the U.K. Vegan Society and the inventor of the word "vegan". In 1944 he got together with a group of friends and they brainstormed to find a word that would describe their diets. He suggested "vegan", using the first three and last two letters of "vegetarian". It was the "beginning and end of vegetarian". Together they founded the Vegan Society. He wrote their first newsletter, which came out in November of 1944 and was called "The Vegan News".
