Gospel Witness Company (Scottdale, Pennsylvania, USA)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Gospel Witness Company was organized in 1905 by Jacob S. Loucks, Aaron Loucks, and A. D. Martin at Scottdale, Pennsylvania, in order to publish a weekly religious periodical, the Gospel Witness (1905-1908). At first the business of the company was carried on in the home of Aaron Loucks. Soon a two-story frame building, 30 x 70 ft., was constructed, and two years later an additional three-story brick building 40 x 70 ft. When the Gospel Witness was merged in 1908 with the Herald of Truth to form the Gospel Herald, the assets of the Gospel Witness Company were sold to the Mennonite Publication Board, and the company was dissolved.
