The next step to be taken was the organization of the publishing work. On May 3, 1861, the Seventh-day Adventist Publishing Association was incorporated in harmony with laws newly formulated by the Michigan legislature, and on May 23, in Battle Creek, bylaws governing the operation of the corporation was adopted. Officers for the association were chosen as follows:

  • President, James White
  • Vice President, G. W. Amadon
  • Secretary, E. S. Walker
  • Treasurer, Uriah Smith
  • Auditor, J. N. Loughborough

James White was elected editor of the Review and Herald, and G. W. Amadon, editor of the Youth's Instructor (RH, May 28, 1861).
