1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 The first journal of NCFR was called Living. It was a quarterly journal to be published in September, November, February, and May. Edited by Paul Sayre and based at the University of Iowa Law Building, Living was the forerunner of the Journal of Marriage and the Family (now Journal of Marriage and Family), which has become the premier research journal of the family field. Despite the momentous tasks of organizing this association and coordinating a national meeting, four issues of Living were published in 1939. The first issue was circulated in January 1939. It included the following articles, written by a variety of professionals:
