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.

Personal from Herbert W Armstrong - THIS is written from Portland, Oregon. I had not been here for years. Yet in 1926-27, when I was "angered" into my first real study of the Bible, we were living in Portland. Most of our readers have read the story. We had been visiting my parents a few days in Salem, Oregon. A neighbor friend of my mother's had engaged my wife in a Bible study. She had asked my wife to turn to certain passages of Scripture and read them aloud. My wife soon came running breathlessly to tell me the exciting news that she had made a wonderful discovery in the Bible. It was going to change her whole way of living. I could see nothing "wonderful" about her new discovery. To me it was religious fanaticism. I was disgusted - angered. I could not bear the disgrace of business associates learning that my wife was a religious fanatic. I tried to argue her out of it. I couldn't.
