Origin of joe

A proposed etymology is as follows: Josephus Daniels (1862-1948) was appointed Secretary of the U.S. Navy by President Woodrow Wilson in 1913. Among his numerous reforms of the Navy was the abolition of the officers' wine mess. From that time on, the strongest drink aboard navy ships was coffee and over the years, a cup of coffee became known as "a cup of Joe". However, further investigation by others at snopes.com showed that the name appeared before the general order by the Navy to ban the wine mess.
