Roy Lundquist was born in Chicago, Illinois, on July 18, 1897, and went to high school in the Chicago area. He was a market analyst for Sears, Roebuck, and Company and was active as a layman in church activities. He served as treasurer of the Moody Memorial Church in Chicago for a number of years and served on the Wheaton Crusade Committee for the Billy Graham Wheaton Crusade in 1959.

He was married to Evelyn Storm Lundquist and had two children, Winston and Joy.

Scope and Content

The bulk of the collection is made up of charts that Lundquist made which attempt to trace the effect Billy Grham Crusades in selected cities had on the crime rates of those cities. There are also a few letters, notes, and newspaper clippings dealing with the Moody Memorial Church in Chicago, Wheaton events, and unidentified architectural drawings.


These materials were given to the Archives by Mrs. Roy Lundquist, September 9, 1975.
