The Presbyterian Guardian (1935-1979) was an important voice in the early years of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church in its vigorous opposition to modernism and its proclamation and defense of Reformed orthodoxy. Established on the eve of the founding of the denomination, it was closely associated with the OPC, although it remained an independent magazine.

Editors of the Guardian during its remarkable 44-year publishing history included H. McAllister Griffiths, J. Gresham Machen, Ned B. Stonehouse, Charles J. Woodbridge, Paul Woolley, Leslie W. Sloat, Robert E. Nicholas, John J. Mitchell, and J. Cameron Fraser.

A free, downloadable PDF version of A Cumulative Index to the Presbyterian Guardian, 1935-1979, (offsite link) compiled by James T. Dennison, Jr., has been made available at the website of Northwest Theological Seminary (offsite link).
