Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

With our next issue - Volume 40, Number 2 - the Plain Truth magazine will enter a new era. At 22 Issues per year, the new Plain Truth will come to you more often with more articles and with greater urgency than ever before. The change in format (and frequency) is another giant step forward the beginning of a new chapter in the history of an amazing publication. Volume I, Number 1 appeared in the depths of the Depression, February 1934, with a circulation of a very few hundreds. It was written entirely by Herbert W. Armstrong, then age 41, in Eugene, Oregon. It was duplicated on an ancient Neostyle and mailed by Mr. Armstrong's devoted wife, Lorna, out of a shoebox mailing list. Mr. Armstrong's first printed words in that issue are still relevant to the world of 1975: "We live today in the most strenuous hours of earth's history. Today we stand on the very threshold of colossal events that will stagger the mind of mortal man.
