Series 5 includes nearly 200 scrapbooks of newspaper clippings regarding Graham's crusades and influence in world events.

Collection Historical Note

In 1956, Duke McCall convinced Billy Graham to house his ministry records at SBTS.  In 1960, the seminary dedicated the Billy Graham Room on the Boyce Centennial Library's second floor, which served as the official repository for Billy Graham Evangelistic Association materials during the next two decades.  After Wheaton College established their Billy Graham Center in 1975, the SBTS collection ceased to be developed with the exception of the newspaper clipping scrapbooks, which continued until 1989..  The Archives' Billy Graham Collection consists of the materials that remain from the old Billy Graham Room.
