Was "recycling" of paper being done in the 1940's, or earlier ?

I remember elementary school teachers in the mid 1970's noting how scarce paper was during WWII. There were a lot of other war materials recycled during the 1940's. People seem to forget that a lot a stuff that can normally be found today was tightly rationed during the war years. Food in general, gasoline, and rubber were really scarce during those years. The U.S. economy was converted into producing military supplies from early 1942 all the way into 1945. There was very little production available for civilian use.
