Use of the verb "to vet" is not recent in the U. S. When I arrived at the
University of South Carolina as a new teaching assistant in 1974 (can it
really be THAT long ago?), I encountered that usage in conversations around
my office. I was located down the hall from the headquarters of the Center
for Editions of American Authors, which was responsible for "vetting"
texts of American literary works submitted for publication as definitive
editions. That was the first time I'd heard the word used as a verb.
