Word And Work magazine was founded by Dr. David Lipscomb Watson in 1908 under the title, The Christian Word And Work. For the first few years he co-edited the paper with Stanford Chambers. Then, in 1913 Chambers became editor and publisher of the paper. It was hosted in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1916, the offices, publishing and editorship moved to Louisville, Kentucky under the leadership of R.H. Boll. The paper was renamed, Word And Work. Stanford Chambers continued with the paper as a senior editor and contributor. E.L. Jorgenson became the publisher, and R.H. Boll was the editor-in-chief. In 1941, due to a temporary sickness, Jorgenson was replaced as publisher by J.R. Clark. Jorgenson continued through the years contributing on the editorial staff. When R.H. Boll passed away in 1956, Jorgenson and Clark became co-editors of the paper. Gordon R. Linscott became managing editor in 1962 and served in this position until 1975. Wm. Robert Heid, who had been missions editor for several years, took over as managing editor in 1976. He edited the paper until Alex Wilson took over editorship in 1986. Wilson served as editor into the 21st century. The paper ceased publication in 2008 and became an online e-magazine in 2011. Alex Wilson selected Larry Miles, Sandra Naugle, Ray Naugle, Bennie Hill, and grandson, Matt Wilson to be the online editors, roles in which they serve to the present. The website where these issues are available are at wordandwork.org.

Below is a growing project to include all of the back issues of the magazine to be available online. With the assistance of Larry Miles and others, this information is now available in .pdf format for free download. Special thanks are extended to Larry Miles for his hard work in collecting, scanning and distributing all these back issues. Note that below is a list of issues from the years available to us. The month's linked is in relation to the issues currently available. The unlinked months represent months currently unavailable to us. Thus, this is a growing project that could involve you.

Here is how you can help: Back issues will be added when they become available. Do you have back issues of Word And Work in your library? If so, feel free to contact Larry Miles. He will let you know how you can help make this collection available for years to come.
