Truth for Youth
Periodical Series number: 61
Span Dates: 1944 - 1950

Truth for Youth was a publication of the Committee on Young People's Work, an agency of the Bible Presbyterian Synod, Collingswood, NJ. Originally titled Faith and Fellowship, it was issued as "a quarterly manual containing articles, topics, musical suggestions, and recreational pointers for young people."

The Rev. Jack Murray served as Editor of the magazine and he was initially assisted by the Rev. John E. Addy, who served as Managing Editor. By the time that the Summer 1946 issue (Volume 2, Number 3) was published, Rev. Addy had been replaced by I.A. Wagner. With the Summer 1948 issue, Dr. Robert G. Rayburn was noted as having joined the Editorial Advisory Board. Cover photography during at least the first two years of publication was produced by H. Armstrong Roberts.
