CMBC Publications was officially organized in 1973, with assistance from D.W. Friesen & Sons. Earlier publication ventures by the College consisted of books/booklets which the College generated for its own purposes. Publications for individuals who had no direct involvements with the College had not been undertaken prior to the formation of CMBC Publications. Rudy Regehr was the person most directly involved with publications.
Name changed to CMU Press after 2000.
