Jerry D.Boyd founded The Cancer Letter.
In 1988, we stopped hand-stuffing the envelopes for The Cancer Letter’s weekly issues.
In 1992, we launched the website.
In 1998, we started publishing online.
In 2001, we started of fering IP-verified site licenses to institutional subscribers.
In 2008, we ceased production of printed and mailed issues and started to publish exclusively online.
In 2014, we redesigned our logo, and the website, allowing readers to access articles on the web as well as on their mobile devices.
In 2018, we made The Clinical Cancer Letter, by then a 41-year-old monthly publication targeted toward clinicians, into a section in our weekly issues, increasing our clinical coverage.
In 2020, we changed our submission guidelines to throw open the doors to the oncology community. Guest Editorials and Trials & Tribulations became a crucially important forum to the oncology community as researchers compared care and safety guidelines and personal experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021, we created the Cancer History Project, a collaborative archive of the history of cancer research and cancer research institutions. Launched as part of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the National Cancer Act, the Cancer History Project will continue to grow in perpetuity.
In 2021, we launched The Cancer Letter’s new, state-of-the-art website.
