Western Book and Publishing Company was organ­ized by H. P. Krehbiel when he moved the Review to Newton, Kansas, from Canton, Ohio in December 1900 and bought the rights to Das Kansas Volksblatt from the Kansan Company which had acquired this periodical from W. J. Krehbiel and David Goerz in 1899.

H. P. Krehbiel, manager, was joined by C. E. Krehbiel in 1901, who served as secretary of the company. The Review was continued through 1904. The Post und Volksblatt began publication in 1904 with H. P. and C. E. Krehbiel as editors. In 1909 the Post und Volksblatt was discontinued and the Western Book and Publishing Company reorgan­ized as the Herold Book and Publishing Company.
