BGEA: Crusade Activities
536 Boxes (180 RC, 348 DC, 8 index card boxes), Audio Tapes, Compact Disc, Negatives, Oversize Materials, Photographs, Photo Albums, Slides (344 cubic feet)
Brief description: Correspondence, reports, minutes, crusade files, and other administrative records, along with audio tapes, oversize materials, photographs, and video tapes, which document the activity of the BGEA's domestic and international crusade planning division, headed by Vice- President Walter H. Smyth, who supervised the mechanics of organizing a Billy Graham crusade. Crusade files contain information about planning, arrangements, scheduling special events, executive committees, follow-up, the School of Evangelism, etc. In addition to Smyth's files are those of division directors of the North American Ministries (Sterling Huston and Tom Phillips) and International Ministries (Blair Carlson, Bob Williams), and crusade directors (Henry Holley and Blair Carlson), who oversaw international crusades between the 1970s and '90s, including those in Australia, Brazil, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain (England and Scotland), Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Russia, and Taiwan (Smyth's files also document these crusades). The collection contains numerous petitions from cities asking Graham to preach in their communities. There is more information in many of these files on Graham's crusades than on those of associate evangelists.

Because a knowledge of the organizational history of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association would be helpful in using this collection, a brief history of the BGEA is available. Ask the Archives staff to see a copy or visit http://www2.wheaton.edu/bgc/archives/bio.html using your Internet browser. Also helpful for the use of this collection is a BGEA staff list (following the Scope and Content section) and glossary (http://www2.wheaton.edu/bgc/archives/glossary.html), which is also available from the staff.
The principle BGEA individuals whose activities are reflected in this collection are those supervising the overall crusade ministries of the BGEA (Walter Smyth), domestic crusades (Sterling Huston and Tom Phillips) or international crusade directors (Henry Holley, Blair Carlson, and Bob Williams) responsible for specific evangelistic events; the titles of these divisions and positions have evolved over the years.
Beginning in 1964, Walter Smyth's title was Vice President of Crusade Organization and Team Activities. In this post he was responsible for the direction of crusades for Billy Graham and his associates, concerts, one-day meetings, etc., as well as for personnel assignments in connection with the Team Office and crusade preparation. He also supervised the activities of the various crusade directors who were directly responsible for individual crusades. Smyth was located in the Team Office in Atlanta, Georgia, where it remained until 1976, when Graham announced that it would be integrated into the Minneapolis headquarters; Smyth's title was then Vice President of International Relations & Crusade and Team Activities. That same year Smyth's position was subdivided into the Vice President of International Ministries (in which capacity he continued until 1987 followed by Robert Williams) and the Vice President of North American Ministries (which Sterling Huston began in 1994).
In 1977 International Ministries and North American Ministries were designated as separate divisions. Smyth was given oversight of International Ministries (in which capacity he continued until 1987, followed by Robert Williams in 1993). Sterling Huston had been in charge of North American crusades since 1974; in 1986 he added oversight of Team Activities, and in 1994 he became Vice President of North American Ministries. Tom Phillips was Senior Crusade Director between 1987 and 1994.
The positions held by Sterling Huston leading up to overseeing the North American Ministries included crusade coordinator, personnel assistant for associate evangelist crusades, director of associate crusades, director of North American crusades. In most each of these he supervised the crusade directors for various crusades.
The crusade director, represented predominantly in this collection by Henry Holley, Blair Carlson and Tom Phillips, was responsible to help assess the suitability of a community for a BGEA crusade, represent the BGEA to both crusade committees and civic, business and religious leaders in the community, assist local crusade committees, supply direction and information based on extensive BGEA experience, and coordinate BGEA Team plans and activities when they arrived for the crusade.
The five key BGEA figures whose records comprise this collection are Walter Smyth, Sterling Huston, Henry Holley, Blair Carlson, and Tom Phillips. Brief information about their responsibilities within the BGEA is included in the addendum following the Scope and Content notes.

Scope and Content
The general focus of the collection is the crusade evangelism of Billy Graham, ranging from 1950 to 1995. (The files of associate evangelist crusades are mostly in Collection 13.) There is some documentation of pre-1960 crusades, but the bulk of the collection covers the time period from the early 1960s to the 1990s. Materials in this collection emphasize the crusade-coordinating activity of the BGEA, telling the story of evangelistic meetings beginning with the 1957 New York Crusade and covering five decades into the mid-1990s. The span of the documents for any given Billy Graham crusade reveals the process of supervising the mechanics of organizing an event from the time the first invitation to hold a crusade was received from a particular community until the crusade office was closed and the final audit report was published in the newspaper. Files for each crusade deal with many details, such as planning and arranging for the crusade site, scheduling, consulting with the local committees, publicity, special events, executive committees, follow-up, the School of Evangelism, etc. The documents in the collection are written predominantly in English, although substantial portions of those for international crusades, such as in Hong Kong and Japan are in Chinese and Japanese.
The collection is organized around the individuals who served as crusade directors and supervisors of crusade directors. The principle person whose activity and supervision is documented in this collection is Walter Smyth. The activities of several other BGEA figures are also recorded, including crusade directors Sterling Huston, Henry Holley, Blair Carlson, Tom Phillips, Bob Williams, Elwyn Cutler, and their respective secretaries (Eva Prior was Smyth's secretary, and Cathy Wood, Huston's).
The collection is comprised of three series of documents, corresponding to 1) Walter Smyth's initial oversight of both domestic and international crusades, and the subsequent division of the crusade or Team Office into 2) North American Ministries and 3) International Ministries. The largest of these series is the records of Walter Smyth who supervised the BGEA's crusade activities over four decades. The other figures whose records are included fall under either the North American Ministries (Sterling Huston, Tom Phillips) or International Ministries (Henry Holley, Blair Carlson, Bob Williams) sections. Huston oversaw planning for associate evangelists' crusades and later Billy Graham's crusades, while Holley and Carlson as crusade directors were responsible for one international Billy Graham crusade at a time. (John Corts also served as the crusade director for the 1979 Florida West Crusade and his records are included at the end of Smyth's series.) Many of the documents include a short list in the upper right hand corner which seem to indicate other folders in which related material or a duplicate appears. Many of the series are further subdivided into smaller units. The accessions received from the BGEA also included numerous artifacts, largely souvenir and promotional items for various crusades such as clothing (scarfs, shirts, ties, hats), jewelry, paper weights, tote bags, etc., (most of which were transferred to the Billy Graham Training Center at the Cove). Crusade files were often accompanied by clippings, articles, press releases and other media coverage of a crusade. In many cases these clippings were relocated into the BGEA clipping file in Collection 360. Audio tapes and video tapes were reallocated to Collection 26 and Collection 113.
The collection is subdivided into the following five series:
The numerous accessions which make up this collection were usually received in some disorder, with little supporting information that showed the relation of the various accessions to each other. Therefore, the overall arrangement of the collection was provided by the archivist. Order of each series has been retained where order existed. Although the accessions for the most part were received in recognizable and good order, no attempt was made to eliminate every deviation from this and researchers will find in a few cases that files do not appear in their anticipated alphabetical order.
The following descriptions further illuminate the specific contents of these series and their subseries. Although the majority of the collection is described only to the box level, the first twenty-five boxes are described by individual folder titles (see CONTAINER LIST near the end of this guide).
Series 1: Walter Smyth files (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Arrangement: Walter Smyth's files are subdivided into seven subseries, outlined as follows:
Subseries 1.1.1. General correspondence
Arrangement: Subdivided into four subunits, the first (1960-1977) arranged alphabetically by subject or proper name, with most folder titles in the second consisting of just an alphabet letter. The second subunit (1961-1977) is arranged alphabetically. The third subunit (1978-1983 with the bulk 1978-1980) is arranged alphabetically. The fourth and largest subunit (1972-1987, bulk 1980-1984), arranged alphabetically, does not include files for the letters A, B, or C.
Date range: 1960-1984
Volume: 13.2 cubic feet
Boxes: 92-94, 97-100, 307-325 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, inter-office memos, reports, forms
Correspondents: Walter Smyth, Eva Prior, individuals corresponding to the folder title, key figures in the non-BGEA organization corresponding to the folder title, BGEA colleagues like Don Bailey and Henry Holley, other BGEA staff, and assorted American and international church leaders and evangelists.
Notes: Administrative correspondence, the first and third subseries being more specific for organizations or persons, with the second more general, related to maintaining or establishing contacts, responding to offers of services or requests for assistance, responding to referrals from other BGEA staff, requests for participation in events by BGEA Team members, a significant portion of which appears to be inquiries about possible visits by Billy Graham to a community or institution which he was unable to make. The first subunit of administrative correspondence includes files for organizations like African Enterprise, American Bible Society, Baptist churches, Campus Crusade for Christ, and the BGEA's World Wide Pictures, and Grason, and people such as Don Bailey, Walter F. Bennett, Billy Graham, Dennis Clark (World Evangelical Fellowship), A.J. Dain, Dave Foster (Eurovangelism), Richard Halverson (primarily the newsletter Perspective), Sterling Huston, Lawrence Nerheim, Smyth's communication (with Bailey, with Layman, with Prior and with Root), and Herbert J. Taylor. Folder titles include Controversial, Counsel (as in spiritual counsel), Human Interest, Officials (as in local, state and national government officials), Prayer Requests, Referrals (from Don Bailey and Forrest Layman), and Strange. In the third subsection (for which files for the letters A,B and C are not included), for each letter D-Z there are files (some correspondence and others reference) for specific individuals according to letter (among them are Lewis Drummond, Joni Earekson, Paul Eshleman, Nilson Fanini, Michael Green, Os Guiness, Secretary of State Alexander Haig, Akira Hatori, Don Hoke, Tom Houston, David Howard, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Torrey Johnson, Samuel Kamaleson, Kenneth Kantzer, Billy Kim, Gilbert Kirby, Festo Kivengere, Jim Kraakevik, John Kyle, Gordon Landreth, Floyd McClung, Samuel Moffett, Stan Mooneyham, Stephen Olford, J. Edwin Orr, Nene Ramientos, Cliff Richard, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, Bill Shoemaker, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, John Stott, Corrie ten Boom, J. Christy Wilson) and a general file bringing together various individuals for that letter. Also sprinkled throughout there are also files with subject headings (such as death, disabled, films, information, insurance, inventory, media, military, missionaries, politics, prisons, radio, schools, strange, etc.), and a few organizations (including Evangelism Explosion, assorted Foundations, Fuller Seminary, Haggai Institute, assorted Hotels, Lausanne Committee, Moody Bible Institute, National Religious Broadcasters, OC Ministries, assorted Organizations (CONELA, Free the Siberian Seven, MAF, Navigators, PTL, Scripture Union, World Vision, Youth for Christ, Youth With a Mission), 700 Club, Samaritan's Purse, World Council of Churches, and others).
Subseries 22.214.171.124 Team correspondence: 1960-1985
Arrangement: By time period (1960-1983, 1980-1985), within each time span alphabetically by name of the Team member, within each name chronologically with most recent first
Date range: 1960-1985
Volume: 19.5 cubic feet
Boxes: 75-92, 161 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Domestic, international
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, reports, telegrams, publicity material, financial records and reports, statistics
Correspondents: Walter Smyth, BGEA administrators and staff, associate evangelists. This series reads like a BGEA who's who and brings together many BGEA figures; among them the following have more substantial or multiple files: Joel Aarsvold, Akbar Abdul-Haqq, Lane Adams, John Akers, Jeff Anderson, Don Bailey, Dave Barr, Cliff Barrows, Jerry Beavan, L. Nelson Bell, Barry Berryman, Martha Bridges (nee Warkentin, Graham's secretary; also one folder under Warkentin), Bill Brown, Werner Burklin, Russ Busby, Blair Carlson, George Clark, Sundar Clarke, John Corts, Robert Cunville, A. Jack Dain, Ted and Millie Dienert, John Dillon, Paul Eshleman, Bob Evans, Robert Ferm, Leighton Ford, Billy Graham (alphabetized under "Billy,") Walter Grist, Alexander Haraszti, Henry Holley, Sterling Huston, Howard Jones, V. Sam Jones, Forrest Layman, Carol Lindsay, Jim Matthis, Ken McVety, Stan Mooneyham, Norm Mydske, Victor Nelson, Dan Nuesch, Rosemary Phillips (Mission England office), Charles Riggs, Maurice Rowlandson (BGEA's London office), Peter Schneider, Gil Stricklin, Harvey Thomas, Helen Verco (BGEA's Australian office), Charles Ward, Harry Williams, Stephanie Wills, George Wilson, Grady Wilson, Jean Wilson (BGEA's London office), T.W. Wilson.
Subjects: The BGEA's evangelistic meetings and outreach, internal administration and finances, contacts with religious, political and civic leaders. To assess the particular issues which might correspond with a particular individual, the researcher should consult the BGEA guide to determine the sphere of their responsibility. As an example, Dave Barr worked in World Wide Pictures, particularly related to its international distribution; therefore, his files document WWP and the BGEA's film ministry.
Notes: Some of these files are extensive and thoroughly record the activities and responsibilities of the corresponding person. The two subseries overlap somewhat, with the second being more recent and more concentrated on a few key BGEA individuals. Many of the memos include a short list in the upper right hand corner which seem to indicate other folders in which related material or a duplicate appears, accompanied by a short summary of the contents of an attached document.
Exceptional items: Folder 75-18 contains a transcript of Akbar Abdul-Haqq's comments during a dialogue in 1965 at Ball State University on anthropology, philosophy and religion. John Akers, Special Assistant to Billy Graham, was involved in conducting research to prepare Graham for crusades and meetings with religious, political and civic leaders, and in planning and details of his international visits, like that to Eastern Europe and Russia or with the Pope; his files reflect this involvement. Folder 75-28, for example, includes late-1980 first-draft manuscripts of messages Graham would deliver in Poland and Hungary.
Subseries 126.96.36.199: Team matters
Arrangement: Roughly alphabetical according to subject
Date range: 1962-1982
Volume: 4.3 cubic feet
Boxes: 94-96, 162-163 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Memos, correspondence, duplicated documents for general distribution
Correspondents: Smyth, Bailey, and Prior are the key authors of the documents
Notes: This series documents outline routine arrangements and policy for the BGEA Team, including such diverse subjects as awards granted to members, requests for permission to serve on the boards of other organizations, finances, etc. Many of the memos include a short list in the upper right hand corner which seem to indicate other folders in which related material or a duplicate appears, accompanied by a short summary of the contents of an attached document. Many documents are duplicated for distribution, whether memos about an event or a change in someone's responsibility, or a policy document. Folder titles of more substantial files or set of files include Bios, Films, Finance, General, Policy & Procedures, Prep Team, Schedules (1964-1976), Team Prospects (1964-1981), Team Meetings (1962-1978), the last three being the most substantial. Box 162 includes planning files for the 1981 Team and Staff Conference (TASC) and files about the Canadian Agape evangelistic television program overseen by (John Wesley White) and corresponding traveling concert ministry. The subseries is rounded out with files about BGEA's associate evangelists and the program of coordinating their ministry.
Exceptional items: Folder 94-50 includes a statement by Tom Skinner at the 1969 US Congress on Evangelism in Minneapolis denying allegations that black delegates at the meeting were advocating revolt and opposition to Billy Graham.
Subseries 1.1.3.: International Office correspondence
Arrangement: Subdivided into two subunits, the first alphabetically by country name within a continent (1961-1981, 1962-1981) and the second alphabetically by crusade (1967-1982, bulk 1980-1981). For each country there may be a series of files. The subseries by continent is further divided into two subunits, each enumerating various continents.
Date range: 1960-1982
Volume: 13.4 cubic feet
Boxes: 138-150, 161-162 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Domestic and international, including Africa (Liberia), Asia (Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan), Europe (Ireland, Vatican), Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, China, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland), North America (Canada, Mexico), South America (Brazil)
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, telegrams, articles, reports, lists, schedules, statistics
Correspondents: Smyth, Eva Prior, Sterling Huston, Don Bailey, John Dillon, Alexander Haraszti (in the Eastern Europe section), Blair Carlson, other BGEA staff and associate evangelists, and Christian leaders and missionaries throughout the world
Notes: The files in the first subunit, although geographically oriented, revolve primarily around a crusade or major event, including the following: 1976 Pan African Christian Leadership Assembly, 1975 Hong Kong Crusade, the 1977 Good News Festival and 1972 Nagaland Crusade in India, the 1967 Tokyo Crusade and 1980 Japan Crusades, the Korea '73 Crusade, the 1977 Metro-Manila Crusade, the 1978 Singapore Crusade, 1975 Taipei Crusade, Euro '70 in Dortmund, 1972 visits to Belfast and Dublin, 1981 visit with the Pope at the Vatican, 1971 European Congress on Evangelism, 1965 Lower Mainland Crusade (Vancouver), 1967 Centennial Crusade (Winnipeg), Graham's 1974 participation in the first International Baptist Congress of Evangelism (for Spanish-speaking people), and Geração 79 (Generation 79 Youth Congress sponsored by Youth for Christ) in Sao Paulo. There is a special subsection devoted to Eastern Europe (also includes China) especially to Poland in 1978, Hungary in 1981, among others; these files document visits by Billy Graham or his representatives rather than extended crusades; while they record meetings of shorter duration, their significance comes from their occurring during the Cold War period. For several of the crusades there are preliminary planning reports which crusade director Henry Holley submitted to Smyth.
The second subunit by continent seems to have more correspondence with national church leaders, including Festo Kivengere of Uganda (folder 162-26, see also folder 100-32), P. Octavianus of Indonesia (folder 144-74), Juan Isais of Mexico (folder 145-44), and David MacLagan of Scotland (folder 146-58), much of it relating to coordinating a visit by or message from Billy Graham, involvement of other BGEA evangelists or staff, request for financial support or an invitation to a crusade or conference, or coordinating arrangements for showing World Wide Pictures films. The geographical coverage is much more widespread, including files for regions (Central Africa, West Africa, East Africa, etc.) and many countries on each continent (boldfaced are more substantial):
Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Republic of China, Guam, Fiji, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, New Guinea, Okinawa, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam)
Australia and New Zealand
Mexico (includes in box 145 much information on the 1981 Congreso Nacional Mexico in Mexico City and Villahermosa)
South America (Brazil, Central America, Panama)
Europe (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy (including Rome and Vatican), Holland, London, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland (includes a record of searching possible locations for what became Amsterdam '83), Wales, Yugoslavia)
Middle East (Iran, Kuwait, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon)
A third subunit, organized by crusade according to country, is very similar to the one preceding it
and appears to possibly be an extension of it. Much of the correspondence relates to
arrangements, particularly those for entering and visiting in foreign countries, such as Graham's
visit with the Pope in 1981 or his travel to the Soviet Union in 1982. The files also document
ongoing contacts within countries (such as with Michael Green, Tom Houston, Gilbert Kirby,
Gordon Landreth, David Maclagan,) which in some cases develop into crusades. Domestic
crusades documented include the 1980 Central Indiana Crusade, 1980 Northern Alberta
(Edmonton) Crusade, 1980 Las Vegas-Reno Crusade, 1981 Baltimore Crusade, 1981 American
Festival of Evangelism, 1981 Southern Alberta (Calgary) Crusade, 1981 San Jose/Bay Area
Crusade, 1982 New England Crusade. The Eastern Zone (predominantly Eastern Europe) section
makes up a significant portion of the subseries, documenting media coverage and contacts, as
well as communication with church leaders and government representatives in countries
including Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Turkey, USSR,
Vatican, and Yugoslavia. Other areas or countries covered include West Germany, Indonesia,
Islands (Caribbean), Mexico (boxes 147 and 148 contain additional information about the 1981
Congreso Nacional Mexico in Mexico City and Villahermosa), "Other" (consisting of small files
corresponding with countries throughout the world including those mentioned in the previous
series and Argentina, China, Nepal, New Guinea, Norway, Sweden, Uganda, Wales), Sri Lanka
(concerning a crusade Graham intended to hold in Colombo but had to cancel, box 148),
Thailand (concerning the 1980 Consultation on World Evangelization), and the United Kingdom.
This last portion of the subseries is the largest, spanning boxes 148, 149 and 150 and
documenting invitations for Graham to conduct crusades in Great Britain, including in
Birmingham in the later 1970s, contacts in Ireland and Scotland, Graham's 1980 visits to Oxford
and Cambridge Universities, the 1982 Blackpool Crusade, and the process leading up to Mission
England in 1984 and 1985); most of the Blackpool files relate to the crusade itself. Also see
folders 396-4 and 8 (various) and folder 397-3 (Mission 89) relating invitations for Graham to
conduct other international meetings, and folders 484-4,5 for the 1993 Columbus Crusade.
Exceptional items: Folder 143-69 titled "Photos" contains photocopies of images taken during Graham's visit to Poland in 1978, of which Smyth was also a part.
Subseries 1.1.4: Billy Graham speaking engagement schedules
Arrangement: Three subunits according to state (alphabetical), school (alphabetical by state), and miscellaneous (alphabetical). A fourth subunit consists of chronologically arranged schedule notebooks.
Date range: 1961-1977
Volume: 5.6 cubic feet
Boxes: 121-126 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Domestic and international, Vietnam for Graham's visit to US troops
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, notebooks
Correspondents: Walter Smyth, Eva Prior, Willis Haymaker, BGEA staff, pastors, Christian leaders, lay people, students, college representatives (presidents, chaplains, etc.)
Notes: The documents in this subseries record contact between the BGEA and churches, organizations, educational institutions ((high schools, colleges, technical schools), and individuals to arrange speaking engagements by Billy Graham. The files in the miscellaneous subunit represent a broad spectrum of associations. Among them are groups files under the rubric of "Clubs" (such as the Boy Scouts of America, Chambers of Commerce, Nurses Christian Fellowship), Disabled, Ecumenical, Indians, Jewish, Medical, branches of the U.S. military service, Organizations (Campus Crusade, Christian Business Men's Committee, Christian Women's Clubs of America, International Christian Leadership, Youth for Christ), Prisons, Radio & TV, Rock festivals, Roman Catholic, Sports. A number of the letters are written to Billy Graham, while the reply comes from Walter Smyth or another BGEA staffperson. The schedule notebooks consist of typed pages which list dates, location of meeting being considered, and short description of communication (in person, by phone or correspondence) with Graham (or his associates) about the event whether in person or by correspondence.
Subseries 1.1.5: BGEA Board files
Arrangement: Mixed with no reordering done by the archivist
Date range: 1961-1987
Volume: 1.2 cubic feet
Boxes: 126-127 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Correspondence, telegrams, meeting agenda and minutes, reports to the BGEA board
Correspondents: Board members (Alan Emery, EV Hill, Maxey Jarman, Bill Mead, Harold John Ockenga, Robert Van Kampen, William Walton), Walter Smyth, Billy Graham, Joel Aarsvold, Alexander Haraszti, Sterling Huston, Eva Prior
Notes: The series consists of Smyth's office's interaction with BGEA board members, including a record of their deliberations (both in official meetings and at other times), business, and committee work, as well as matters requested by board members from Smyth or Graham. Some of the files seem only marginally related to board matters if at all, but may have been inadvertently intermingled with the Board files prior to shipping.
Subseries 1.1.6: International (or Overseas) Offices
Arrangement: Alphabetical by country or region
Date range: 1962-1982
Volume: .9 cubic feet
Boxes: 128 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Latin America, Mexico, New South Wales or Sydney (Australia), Spain, Switzerland
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, reports, minutes, financial reports, press releases, articles of incorporation and by-laws
Correspondents: Walter Smyth, Eva Prior, international office directors, staff, and officers, board members (London: Maurice Rowlandson and Jean Wilson; France: Andre Thobois and John Winston; Germany: Werner Burklin; Hong Kong: V. Samuel Jones; Latin America: Norm Mydske; Australia: Barry Berryman)
Notes: These are Smyth's files related to the BGEA's offices throughout the world. Documented is interaction between the offices and the BGEA headquarters, coordination of crusades or programs, publication of foreign language versions of DECISION, broadcast of Hour of Decision, distribution of World Wide Pictures films, etc. The France, London, Germany, and Sydney sections are much more substantive than the others. The documents corresponding to some countries (India, Italy, Japan, Norway, Philippines) were not generated by a BGEA office there but are rather about magazine, television, or film distribution there.
Subseries 1.1.7: Secretary's (Eva Prior) files (?)
Arrangement: Three subunits arranged chronologically, alphabetically within each
Date range: 1959-1987
Volume: 23.5 cubic feet
Boxes: 100-121 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Administrative letters, correspondence, memos, reports, promotional literature, photocopies of articles and clippings
Correspondents: Walter Smyth, Eva Prior, John Akers, Dave Barr, Blair Carlson, Alexander Haraszti, Luis Palau, Maurince Rowlandson, BGEA staff, national and international Christian leaders. Many of the documents are under Eva Prior's signature, so these may be her files.
Notes: Prior's correspondence files comprise one of the more substantive units in the correspondence subseries. As would be expected, many of the subjects are very routine administrative ones like Address changes, Employment, Referrals, etc. The folder titles cover a broad range of subjects, personal and organizational names, including Evangelical figures and agencies. A few BGEA staff names appear throughout, but for the most part the persons with corresponding files are outside the Graham organization. Some anomalies appear in the folder titling, such as the American Bible Society being filed with other folders related to "Bible," or files like "Articles of incorporation" or "By-laws" appearing where the heading might be presumed to be "Corporation." People: Isaac Ababio, Myron Augsburger, Henderson Belk, Walter F. Bennett, Lowell Berry, Cyril Black, John Bolten, Michael Cassidy, Ken Chafin, Billy Kim, Gilbert Kirby, Paul Little, Luis Palau, Smyth's communication with BGEA associates, William Thomas, I. Ben Wati. Organizations: Africa Enterprise (Michael Cassidy), Campus Crusade for Christ, Christianity Today, Consultation on Overseas Evangelistic Strategy (COES), International Christian Leadership, International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, Overseas Crusades. Subjects: Address changes, Automobiles, Awards, Black (as in African Americans), Chapel, Christmas parties, Churches (subdivided into various denominations, cults, etc.), Constructive criticism, Counseling & Follow-up, Drugs, Ecumenical, Employment, Evangelistic endeavors, Evangelistic organizations, Films, Foreign, Gifts, Prisoners or Prisons, Radio & television, Schools (Christian colleges), Seminars (Schools of Evangelism), Strange, Television
Exceptional items: A series of files in box 101 deals with the African American community, church and their involvement in crusades. Some files in the 1981-1987 subunit date back to 1962. A second subunit is smaller in size but parallel's the previous unit, including files for the BGEA's England and German offices. A third unit appears to be a continuation of Prior's files, following the same outline of the previous two subseries, perhaps the beginning of an integration of the three. Some of the folders are as much reference files with photocopies of newspaper clippings or magazine articles about a subject as a compilation of memos and correspondence. Within the subseries there are a few small series, such as archbishops of the Church of England (Box 116) in Great Britain and elsewhere, contacts with celebrities (Box 116), controversies (Box 117, typically disagreement about Billy Graham's doctrine, methodology or associations), deaths (Box 117 of BGEA staff, family members and friends) U.S. presidents (Box 118), local and national government officials (Box 120), and schools (Box 121, primarily theological schools and seminaries). Like the earlier subseries, this one contains folders corresponding to a broad spectrum of subjects, Christian leaders, lay people, and organizations.
Subseries 1.1.8: Blair Carlson's files
Date range: 1976-1983
Volume: .9 cubic feet
Boxes: 164 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Domestic and international
Type of documents: Correspondence, crusade materials, resources like Bible study guides
Correspondents: Carlson, Walter Smyth, Eva Prior, BGEA staff
Notes: This brief subseries contains many copies of materials which may appear elsewhere in the collection, such as several Henry Holley reports in preparation for crusades (1978 Singapore and 1991 Buenos Aires although the report was written almost a decade earlier) and crusade samples. Also included is an alphabetically arranged subsection of files corresponding to continent and country names, ranging from Asia, Australia, Caribbean, Europe, Middle East, and North America. All these materials relate to contacts in the countries or crusades in which Carlson was assisting with the setup and administration, or Graham's travels being coordinated through the division such as his 1982 Moscow visit.
Subseries 1.1.9: Miscellaneous correspondence & crusade files
Arrangement: Alphabetical (because they were received largely unordered, the archivist provided the arrangement)
Date Range: 1952-1984
Volume: 7.9 cubic feet
Boxes: 174-181 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Domestic and international
Type of documents: Correspondence, reports, crusade invitations, statistics, telegrams, memos, forms, etc.
Correspondents: Smyth, Eva Prior, Henry Holley, Sterling Huston, Cliff Barrows, Billy Graham, other BGEA executives and staff, community pastors, church and civic leaders
Notes: Much of this series relates to crusades or communication between the Smyth and his associates and overseas contacts, whether about possible crusades, other speaking engagements or events to which Billy Graham was invited or a participant, follow-up to previous events, the BGEA's international offices, distribution of DECISION magazine, or personal matters. File titles reflect a variety of emphases: document form (address book, charts, or correspondence), a theme (Roman Catholicism, choir, military), a BGEA division or affiliated organization (DECISION magazine, BGEA Ltd. in Australia, Billy Graham Benevolent Fund, or the Billy Graham Foundation, Billy Graham Center, Grason, Hour of Decision, Our Decision), foundational planning documents ("Basic Concept of Crusade Organization"), BGEA functions (accounting, giveaways, board meetings or report to the board), BGEA projects (coffee house or Christmas gift), staff (especially Henry Holley with reports and correspondence), or generic headings (current, pending). A handful of files came untitled and those titles given by the processor appear within brackets, including [untitled].
The predominant portion of the subseries consists of files related to crusades and other meetings to which Graham was invited to speak; these appear in two overlapping but distinct subsections as they were received. The first is further subdivided between domestic crusades/events (arranged alphabetically by state), international crusades, and evangelism congresses. The domestic section begins with Alaska files related to invitations for Graham to bring a crusade to one of the state's major cities, and other BGEA Team activities there. In other cases there are files related to a major crusade, including those in San Diego (1976), San Jose (1981), Calgary or Southern Alberta (1981), Toronto (1978), Halifax or Atlantic (1979), Florida West Coast or Tampa (1979), Chicago (1971), Northwest Chicago (1964), St. Louis (1973), New York City (1957), Pittsburgh (1968), and Tidewater Virginia or Norfolk (1974). There are a few non-crusade events documented too, such as like the Easter sunrise service in Miami (1972) or Graham's speaking to the Jaycees in Atlanta (1972), governors' prayer breakfasts in Atlanta (1972), and Springfield, Illinois (1972), Pilgrim Father's landing 350th anniversary (1970), US Congress on Evangelism (1969), receiving an award at West Point (1972), Billy Graham Day (1971), an Ohio Pastors Convocation (1963), a television Christmas special with Oral Roberts in Tulsa (1972), Grady Wilson Day in Sweetwater, Texas (1974), Expo '74 in Spokane (1974), Honor America Day (1970 and 1979), and Key '73. Among the international crusades represented are Nassau (1982), Rio de Janeiro (1974), Eurofest '75 in Brussels, Berlin (1966), All-Britain Crusade (1966), an attempted crusade in Jamaica (1964), Tokyo (1967), Korea (1973, 1984), Congreso Nacional Crusade in Mexico (1981), New Zealand (1969), and Manila (1977). Also documented are visits to Berlin and the Soviet Union (1982), again to the Soviet Union (1984), dedication of the Billy Graham Nagar in India (1980), the World Congress on Evangelism in Berlin (1966), the Lausanne Congress (1974), and Amsterdam '83.
The second crusade and speaking engagements subsection (also arranged alphabetically by state)
is heavily domestic and weighted toward California, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, and Texas
(the canceled 1965 Heart 'O Texas Crusade in Waco). Invitations to Graham to bring a crusade
to a community are more predominant in the second subsection, but also among them are crusade
files such as for the BGEA's 25th anniversary celebration and crusade in Hollywood (1974), but
also the Ethel Waters testimonial dinner (1972), the 1971 NAE (National Association of
Evangelicals) meeting in Los Angeles, serving as grandmaster of the Tournament of Roses in
Pasadena (1971), addressing the California legislature (1971), Honor America Day (1973), the
presidential inauguration of Richard Nixon (1973), and a visit to Kent State University (1971)
following the student riots there. International meetings documented include the Crusade of the
Americas (1969) and follow-up evangelism congresses in the late 1960s and early '70s. A few
files related to Graham's speaking engagements regardless of place are also included. Not all
meeting files relate to Graham's participation, as in planning meetings for Amsterdam '83 at
which Smyth was representing the BGEA.
Exceptional items: Folder 178-4 contains the draft text of Billy Graham's message to the 1982 World Conference of Religious Workers for Saving the Sacred Gift of Life from Nuclear Catastrophe in Moscow. Folder 180-26 includes a public relations booklet called "For the Inner City" on E.V. Hill's World Christian Training Center which was established as an evangelistic outreach to the African American community of South Central Los Angeles. Folder 180-59 consists of sermons from the School of Evangelism held in conjunction with the 1969 New Zealand Crusade.
Subseries 1.1.10: Untitled files
Arrangement: The files in this subseries were received in no apparent order and without file titles, appearing to have been destined to be filed in an established filing system, based on the notations in the upper right hand corners of the documents contained in them. Based on a cursory review of the files' contents, when possible a title was created (i.e., Eurofest, international, untitled, etc.) and the files have been arranged alphabetically according to these titles. Within each of these subgroups, the files have been arranged chronologically.
Date Range: 1962-1982
Volume: 9.3 cubic feet
Boxes: 181-189 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Domestic and international
Type of documents: Correspondence, reports, telegrams, memos, forms, etc.
Correspondents: Walter Smyth, Eva Prior, Henry Holley, Sterling Huston, Cliff Barrows, Billy Graham, other BGEA executives and staff, community pastors, church and civic leaders
Notes: Like the previous subseries, much of this subseries relates to crusades or communication between the Smyth and his associates and overseas contacts, whether about possible crusades, other speaking engagements or events to which Billy Graham was invited or a participant, follow-up to previous events, the BGEA's international offices, distribution of DECISION magazine, or personal matters. Based on the filing key in the upper right hand corner of many documents and being available in multiple copies, it appears that documents were duplicated for filing with various points of access. In some cases pre-existing handwritten folder titles are crossed out; this was not done by the Archives staff but received that way. File titles created by the Archives staff appear within brackets. Based on the cursory review of the files' contents, the untitled folders have been given titles in brackets [ ] by the archivist where possible to reflect a predominant (although not exclusive) character of the file, although all of them were received without titles. If no aspect predominated, [untitled] was assigned as the title. The predominant crusades being referred to in the international files are those non-domestic crusades which occurred during this period: Hong Kong, Taipei, Manila, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro, and Japan. Several files were titled but as they were integrated into the subseries they were retained there.
Exceptional items: Included in folders 182-5 and 6 are evaluations for the Schools of Evangelism in Pittsburgh (1968) and Kansas City (1967).
Subseries 1.2: Crusade files
Arrangement: Further subdivided into five units. The first (1957-1974) is arranged chronologically by crusade date with the files for each meeting in roughly alphabetical order; the second (1964-1986) is arranged alphabetically by country, continent or state name; the third (1961-1981) is arranged alphabetically by state; the fourth (1963-1987) is arranged chronologically by international crusade; the fifth (1977-1982), primarily alphabetically arranged, is limited to the 1982 New England Crusade, which is further subdivided into sections corresponding to the meetings in Springfield, Massachusetts, Hartford, Connecticut, and Boston. Within each subunit, there is usually a subseries of files for each crusade.
Date range: 1957-1987
Volume: 38.9 cubic feet
Boxes: 1-15, 24, 128-137, 150-160, 163-164 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List or the corresponding detailed folder list)
Geographic coverage: Domestic and international: continents or regions of Africa, Asia, Australia, Caribbean, Europe, Middle East, North America, South America, and countries including Argentina, Australia, Bahamas, Belgium, France, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Puerto Rico, Soviet Union, and Sweden. In some cases US states were interfiled with countries.
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, reports, promotional material, forms, statistics, form letters, schedules, lists, press releases, financial reports and audits, articles of incorporation and by-laws, committee minutes and products, materials for use in the crusade, promotional materials and kits distributed to the media, news releases and press clippings, sample materials. The New England Crusade files also include notebooks containing lists, completed attendance forms and completed questionnaires, and computer printouts (probably to generate mailings) listing name, address, phone number, church affiliation for the following categories: choir, counseling, nurture groups, prayer groups, ushers, as well as coordinators for several of the previous groups.
Correspondents: Smyth, Eva Prior, Billy Graham, Blair Carlson, Willis Haymaker, BGEA associate evangelists, crusade directors (1969 New York: Bill Brown; 1971 Northern California: Harry B. Williams), officers and administrators (1969 New York: Elmer Engstrom, Roger Hull; 1970 Northern California: W. Robert Stover, Lowell Berry; Chicago: Herbert J. Taylor, William Meyers, Robert Van Kampen), Forrest Layman, BGEA staff, committee chairs, community civic, business and religious leaders, domestic and national church leaders
Notes: The first subunit includes samples of printed materials taken from various crusades (box 24), including such items such as Crusade Bulletins, Crusade News, identification tags, posters, report forms, form letters, envelopes, programs, and tickets. The second subunit contains crusade subseries for a string of crusades, primarily in the 1970s, documenting the planning and preparation, physical logistics, involvement of BGEA Team and staff and local leadership, committee work, and the many details leading up to, during and after the crusade; there are similar folder headings for each crusade subseries; the "Controversial" and "Strange" files gather some of the more critical or unusual responses to the crusades; In most cases, a small Team section and Billy Graham section precede the bulk of each crusade subseries which is arranged alphabetically. In the fourth subseries, the files document crusade planning and scheduling, committee activities, public relations, follow-up. See the Container List of this guide for a list of each of the crusades documented. Use of closed circuit television to extend the reach of a crusade is documented in several crusades, including Euro '70 to incorporate centers throughout Europe and Mission Sheffield (1985) throughout Great Britain. A very small subsection at the end of the subseries consists of single files corresponding to various domestic crusades occurring between 1981 and 1983. The New England Crusade files appear to have been those of the crusade office; in the case of the Hartford Crusade, rather than documenting the BGEA side of crusade planning and implementation, this subseries documents the local-level operation of the crusade office. The Boston portion of the subseries relates primarily to Christian Life & Witness Classes, Co-Labor Corp, and Counseling and Follow-up.
Exceptional items: Items worth noting include the itinerary and background material gathered together for a trip the Team took to the Orient in 1963 (folder 1-29) and press releases and reports for the Asia-South Pacific Congress on Evangelism held in 1968 (folders 1-35,36). Also in these files are materials dealing with Graham's 1962 evangelistic tour of several South American cities (folders 2-1 through 2-9), records which have to do with the organization of the 1966 World Congress on Evangelism (folders 11-29 through 11-51), and reconnaissance reports on various European cities made in 1973 in preparation for the 1975 Eurofest (all of box 15). The general correspondence file (folder 1-1) has in it some personal letters as well as some correspondence relating to the administrative structure of the BGEA. A Discussion of Revised Techniques in Crusade Organization (folder 1-14) by Jerry Beavan is a very interesting report that contains suggestions for changes in the way crusades were run.
Subseries 1.3: Crusade invitations
Arrangement: Correspondence (1961-1978) arranged alphabetically by state, notebooks (1970-1993) arranged chronologically by the dates of invitations for specified communities
Date range: 1961-1993
Volume: 12.2 cubic feet
Boxes: 16-24, 50-56 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List) or the corresponding detailed folder list)
Geographic coverage: Correspondence from all fifty states of the U.S. (except Alaska and Hawaii), Canada. Notebooks for: Fresno, CA; San Diego, CA; San Jose, CA; Rocky Mountain Region; Tampa, FL; Atlanta, GA; Boise, ID; Wichita, KS; Louisville, KY; Baltimore, MD; Detroit, MI; Jackson, MS; Charlotte, NC; Albuquerque, NM; Reno, NV; Cincinnati, OH; Cleveland, OH; Columbus, OH; Oklahoma City, OK; Pittsburgh, PA; Nashville, TN; Houston, TX; Odessa, TX; Seattle, WA; Spokane, WA; Tacoma, WA; Salt Lake City, UT; Vancouver, BC

Correspondents: Walter Smyth, Sterling Huston, civic, business and church leaders
Notes: The correspondence consists of requests for Graham or an associate evangelist to hold meetings in a community or area, and replies from the BGEA to those requests. The notebooks are compilations, either received in or having been in notebooks, of invitations for a community or area, ranging from simple, single bound volumes to an elaborate six-volume package for the 1976 Southeastern Michigan Crusade in Pontiac. Some of the letters, were contained in plastic sheets in oversize notebooks, were removed from the notebooks to facilitate storage. The earliest processed portion of the collection also includes invitation notebooks which were interfiled among the folders for the particular crusade which emerged from them, including with the dates of the correspondence in parentheses: San Diego (1962) in folder 5-54, Omaha (1962) in folder 6-8, Colorado (1962-1963) in folder 7-68, Heart of American (Kansas City, 1962) in folders 12-80,81 and 13-1, Tulsa (1962 and 1965) in folders 51-23,24, and so on. Also see folder 125-12 which contains invitation letters urging Billy Graham in 1968 to visit and speak at Ohio State University the following year. See the Sterling Huston subseries in the North American Ministries series for additional invitations which come chronologically after these described here.
Subseries 1.4: Crusade manuals & notebooks
Arrangement: Alphabetical by folder title (often corresponds to crusade functions like visitation or ministers or prayer.
Date range: 1963-1986
Volume: 4.1 cubic feet
Boxes: 171-174, 497 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Compilations of crusade materials, policies, job descriptions, guidelines for organization
Notes: This series brings together a diversity of volumes, most compiled in notebooks or binders. Arrangement was provided by the archivist. Areas covered include crusade accounting, arrangements, counseling, crusade executive committee, finance, follow-up, ethnic groups, amd laymen's committee. Several volumes have a label identifying them with a particular crusade but the contents are generic with nothing in the volume being crusade-specific or even gives evidence of a date of the volume. A number of the volumes are oriented around a particular function or emphasis, such as integrating the crusade program at the congregational level (folders 171-16 to 29), laymen's ministry (folders 172-2 to 6), the activities of ministers (folders 172-11 to 16, folder 173-10), and office procedures. Many of the volumes correspond to a position within the local crusade organization. In some cases an earlier and later version of the policy manual are available, such as the 1963 and 1977 editions of the crusade accounting procedure manual (folders 171-5 and 6).
Exceptional items: Folder 171-7 is a 1970 version of an associate evangelist crusade manual; see also folder 172-17. Folder 171-8 contains Baltimore: A Panoramic View prepared by a Baltimore pastor in preparation for the 1981 crusade there. Folder 171-9 includes a bibliography of books or booklets about Billy Graham and a transcript of his 1973 White House Christmas message. The 1986 international manual (folder 172-1) focuses on the organization of the outreach to various ethnic groups within the context of a domestic crusade; the notebook includes appendices for work with speakers of Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, Cambodian, Hmong, Laotian and Arabic; folder 172-1 and 173-15 (singles, youth, student). The notebooks in folder 172-7 resource notebooks for all the materials which can be ordered for use in the crusade, ranging from crusade films to Bible study materials to songbooks and sheet music to posters. Folder 173-11 consists of Sterling Huston's notebook "Responsibilities of Associate Crusade Music Coordinator." The notebook in folder 172-9 appears in the same binder as 172-7, but the contents are very different; this folder contains a variety of detailed documents with directions for setting up the crusade corporation and office, hiring a staff, complying with accounting standards, coordinating volunteers, publishing the crusade newsletter, and establishing a bulk mailing program. One notebook (folder 172-10 draws together the military, prison and usher's manuals for the 1986 Greater Washington DC Crusade; also see folder 173-15 which corresponds to singles, youth and students. Folders 172-18,19 and 173-1 to 6 appear to be Sterling Huston's notebooks for presentations at the earliest stages of establishing a local crusade committee and office. The notebook in folder 173-12 is unlike any other in that it doesn't contain policy statements or an outline of procedures but short broadcast outlines of the 15-minute broadcasts of Prayertime which was broadcast during a crusade, in this case prior to the 1972 Alabama Crusade in Birmingham and the 1971 Greater Southwest Crusade in Irving, Texas. Folder 173-19 consists of a "General Crusade Office Operation Procedures" notebook and was it was intended for use by crusade office managers; although it is not tied to a single crusade it appears to be from about 1967. The notebook in folder 174-1 (spanning from 1968 to 1975 but primarily coming from 1974 and 1975) is a valuable compilation of lists, including crusade offices and staffs, Team Office staff (spouses, addresses and birth dates), board of director lists for the BGEA's foreign affiliates, a budget and subsidies section (memos, financial reports, letters) subdivided for various parts of the world, and executive committee lists for events of the mid-1970s (i.e., Hong Kong crusade, Eurofest 75, and the Lausanne Congress). The remaining notebooks in the series are Smyth's planning notebooks (folders 174-2 through 6); several of these were stored in large notebooks and have been subdivided into several folders while retaining their order. Like the preceding notebook, with the exception of the 1969 Alaska crusade, these primarily document the period from 1974 to 1975. They consist of letters and memos, reports, financial reports, board minutes, etc., for the BGEA's foreign offices including Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, and Australia; each section is further subdivided by Finance, Correspondence, DECISION, Films, Information - General, Lists, Minutes, and Pending, although in some cases a section may be empty.
Subseries 1.5: Crusade Guidance Portfolios
Arrangement: Alphabetical, first by office, then by committee
Date range: 1973, 1980
Volume: 1.8 cubic feet
Boxes: 24, 170-171, 496 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Each volume is a compilation of duplicated material such including forms, statement of responsibilities, instructions, form letters, checklist forms, goal statements,
Notes: Each volume in this 1973 series corresponds to the local primary positions (Chairman, Ministerial First Vice-chairman, Administrative Second Vice-chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, Office Secretary) or committees (Arrangements, Counseling, Field Work, Finance, Follow-up, Music, Operation Andrew, Prayer, Publicity, Visitation, Youth). Written, compiled or updated by Sterling Huston, they were given to local crusade committees to help explain most of the important crusade committees (along with form letters to use) and facilitate their organization. To see an earlier version of the same series, see Collection 13, box 27.
Subseries 1.6: Evangelism congresses and conventions
Arrangement: Into three subunits (the most substantial of which is the files for Amsterdam '83), with each alphabetically arranged: International Congress on World Evangelization (ICOWE or Lausanne Congress) in Lausanne, Switzerland, 1974; Consultation on World Evangelization (COWE) in Pattaya, Thailand, 1980; International Conference for Itinerant Evangelists (ICIE, Amsterdam '83), Amsterdam, Netherlands, 1983
Date range: 1970-1984 (files span 1970-1974 for the 1974 Congress, 1974-1979 for the Lausanne Continuation Committee and Lausanne Committee on World Evangelization)
Volume: 6.2 cubic feet
Boxes: 165-170, 306 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, forms, reports, statistics, event samples, financial information, lists, promotional material, consultation samples, minutes, telexes,
Correspondents: 1974 Lausanne Congress (Walter Smyth, Eva Prior, Congress administrators and staff, Leighton Ford), 1980 COWE (Walter Smyth, Eva Prior, Dave Howard, Leighton Ford, Stan Izon, John Howell, Blair Carlson, other Consultation administrators and staff), Amsterdam '83 (Walter Smyth who chaired the executive committee and was a member of the program advisory committee, Eva Prior, Blair Carlson who assisted Smyth, Werner Burklin who was the Conference Executive Director, Leighton Ford who chaired the Program Committee, Mary Becker who was Smyth's secretary, and Paul Eshleman who was the program director)
Notes: These Lausanne Congress files reflect Smyth's administrative responsibilities for a meeting or his awareness or oversight of BGEA participation in the Congress, including Billy Graham's role in it. For example, Smyth was a member of the 1974 Lausanne Congress Planning and Administrative Committees, so his files include planning meeting minutes in the four years preceding the Congress. Smyth's Lausanne Congress records are actually subdivided into three subseries (there appears to be some overlap between the first two, but it is unclear what distinguishes them). The third, a very short subseries corresponding to the Continuation Committee and Lausanne Committee (LCWE) which emerged from it, documents the follow-up to the Congress and the development of the LCWE. These latter files don't document Smyth's ongoing participation but rather his being kept updated on developments on behalf of the BGEA. There are two collections directly related to this subseries: Records of the Lausanne Committee on World Evangelization (Collection 46), and Records of the International Congress on World Evangelization (Collection 53).
The COWE files reflect Smyth's role as a BGEA liaison for the Consultation and attendance at the meeting in Thailand. A report by Henry Holley documents his efforts to do fund raising for the Consultation during a 1979 tour of Asian countries (folder 166-34). Smyth seems to have had a special interest in the participation of Eastern Europeans and was kept appraised of those who were accepted to join in the Consultation. Blair Carlson, who worked as an associate to Smyth in the BGEA, was loaned to the Consultation for administrative assistance in the Operations Department and his activities are documented through his reports. Also see the records of the Lausanne Committee on World Evangelization (Collection 46) for extensive documentation of the 1980 meeting in Thailand.
The Amsterdam '83 series is especially significant as it documents Smyth's oversight and
activity as chairman of the Conference. The files cover the full range of activity from developing
policy and philosophy to everyday details, extensively documenting the preparation process,
executive meetings and deliberations, the activities of various committees and subordinates,
arrangements, invitations to participants, finances, public relations, coordination of BGEA
involvement and support, and staffing. Amsterdam '83 is most substantially documented in the
records of the Conference, Collection 253, while the subsequent conference, Amsterdam '86, is
documented in Collection 560.
Exceptional items: Folder 169-6 contains an organizational chart for the Conference. Folder 169-31 contains a report (with attachments) from Samaritan's Purse on their distribution of clothing to participating evangelists and their financial assistance to program coordinated by evangelists. Folders 306-7 and 8 consist of the Executive Director's (Werner Burklin) report, while folder 306-9 is a compilation of "Critiques and Reports," a number of which are in response to the question "It is January 1, 1983 and time, personnel, finances, etc. are not limited. What would you do differently in your area of responsibility?"
Series 1.7: John Corts' 1979 Florida West Coast Crusade files
Summary: This subseries records a single crusade for which Corts was director
Date range: 1978-1979
Volume: .9 cubic feet
Boxes: 137-138 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Tampa area
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, lists, meeting agenda and minutes, forms, financial and other reports, committee materials, survey questionnaires, press releases, promotional material, stadium contract, tax information
Correspondents: Corts, local crusade executives and committee chairs
Notes: These files document the planning and preparation for the crusade and Corts's oversight of the process as the top BGEA representative leading up to the crusade. Interaction with crusade committees and executives is recorded. There is some communication from the local Christians or the broader community, including complaints and criticisms (folders 137-93, 94).
Series II: North American Ministries (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Arrangement: Outlined below, the series is subdivided into two subseries reflecting Sterling Huston's activity as a crusade coordinator, director or supervisor of the division which carried out these functions in the domestic sphere, followed by files reflecting the activity of BGEA staff working on domestic crusades under the supervision of Tom Phillips. The files of Tom Phillips' associates are arranged by administrator or crusade. The series does not include Phillips' own working files.
Date range: 1983-1999
Volume: 89.5 cubic feet
Geographic coverage: Domestic unless otherwise noted
Notes: These files thoroughly document BGEA crusades in the United States and Canada between the 1960s and into the 2000s, with a few international crusades also included. Huston's files are the only ones in this collection which include the evangelistic meetings conducted by BGEA associate evangelists; the balance of BGEA records related to associate evangelist meetings will be found in Collections 4, 12 and 13.
Subseries 2.1.1: Sterling Huston crusade files
Arrangement: Subdivided into two further subseries: the first (1965-1978) is arranged alphabetically by the state or Canadian province (boxes 45 and 46) in which the crusade was held; the second (1959-2002) chronologically. Within each subseries there are subseries consisting of a number of files for each crusade.
Date range: 1965-2002
Volume: 66.2 cubic feet
Boxes: 25-49, 56-73, 285-299, 498-531 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Predominantly U.S., but some Canada, and non-North American, such as the 1975 Hong Kong, 1975 Taipei, and 1977 Manila crusades.
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, reports, promotional material, forms, statistics, form letters
Correspondents: Sterling Huston, Walter Smyth, John Dillon, Don Bailey, associate evangelists, crusade directors, BGEA staff, and community civic, business and religious leaders
Notes: The files in boxes 26 through 49 intermingle those for Graham and his associate evangelists, because that is the way the files were received from the BGEA. There is substantially more information for Graham's crusades than there is for those of the associates. The files for the crusades conducted by associate evangelists appear to have been those of Don Bailey (see Collection 12, Team Office: Executive Assistant for Team Activities) and John Dillon (see Collection 13, Team Office: Field Director for Associate Evangelists), and bear enough resemblance with those in these two collections to strongly suggest that relationship. Within the subseries are further subseries for each crusade; each of these is arranged in much the same way with folder headings being largely standardized. The documents record the planning of the crusade, the many logistics, leadership provided by the community churches, statistics and the post-event follow-up and audit.
Exceptional items: Box 73 includes a small series of files documenting the Canadian AGAPE project, which consisted of the television program AGAPE featuring Canadians John Wesley White and George Beverly Shea, and concurrent multi-media evangelistic meetings and concerts featuring BGEA musicians and White, presumably to promote interest in and support of the show. The television program was launched in 1974 with BGEA support and was discontinued in mid-1978 due to lack of Canadian financial backing (despite a favorable viewer response and conversions). Lowell Jackson was the principal administrator, serving as project coordinator. Also see AGAPE files in box 162. Transcribed excerpts of Billy Graham's messages during the 1972 Charlotte Crusade are filed in folder 36-42. Graham's speech on "Indian Leadership in Indian Evangelism" to the 1975 Conference on Indian Evangelism and Christian Leadership (held in Albuquerque, New Mexico), filed in folder 34-72, is probably the most extensive document in the Archives of Graham's views on Native American evangelism.
Subseries 2.1.2: Sterling Huston miscellaneous administrative files
Date range: 1950-1989
Volume: 1.8 cubic feet
Boxes: 1, 73-75 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List) or the corresponding detailed folder list)
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, forms, duplicated material, manuscripts
Correspondents: Sterling Huston, John Dillon, associate evangelist crusade coordinators, associate evangelists
Notes: The subseries consists of a mix of files from Sterling Huston and John Dillon, but are included here as files maintained by Huston. Among Huston's files are those related to the production of his book Crusade Evangelism and the Local Church, files on assistance given to individuals and organizations by various BGEA staff, and the development and infancy of the Billy Graham Center. Dillon's files relate to the ministries of associate evangelists, including memos sent to crusade coordinators and associate evangelists (1970-1986), associate evangelist schedules, and reference files on Christian musicians available for associate evangelist crusades.
Subseries 2.1.3: Crusade invitations
Date range: 1973, 1983-2001
Volume: 3.8 cubic feet
Boxes: 280-284, 532-536 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Types of documents: Notebooks or files of loose letters from religious leaders, lay persons, and civic leaders inviting Billy Graham to conduct a crusade in their city, many but not all of which took place.
Geographic coverage: Notebooks for: Little Rock, AR; Jacksonville, FL; Tallahassee, FL; Indianapolis, IN; Minneapolis, MN; St. Louis, MO; Winston-Salem, NC; Albany, NY; Buffalo-Niagara, NY; Rochester, NY; Syracuse, NY; Cleveland, OH; Toronto, ON; Philadelphia, PA; Charleston, SC; Columbia, SC; Knoxville, TN, Nashville, TN; Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX; Salt Lake City, UT
Notes: These files of invitations are similar to those in the Walter Smyth crusade invitations subseries described above.
Subseries 2.2: Tom Phillips
Arrangement: By staff person (subseries 2.2.1: General, subseries 2.2.2: Elwyn Cutler, subseries 2.2.3: Jeannie Hickman) and crusade event (subseries 2.2.4).
Date range: 1977-1993 (bulk 1988-1993)
Volume: 17.7 cubic feet
Boxes: Boxes 442-485, 495 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Domestic
Types of documents: Correspondence, reports, forms, memos, financial reports, statistics, etc.
Correspondents: Tom Phillips, Sterling Huston, Elwyn Cutler, Steve Nelson, Jeannie Hickman, Dorothy Bennett, Pam Furlow, Pat Borgens, church and community leaders, BGEA staff
Notes: The files in this series consist of those who worked under Tom Phillips' supervision as crusade director, rather than of his personal administrative files. The files document a series of domestic crusades which took place between 1986 and 1992. The distinctions between the subseries are somewhat blurred, and most of these individuals worked together on several crusades and therefore have documents that appear in the various subseries. For this reason the subseries other than that for a series of domestic crusades between 1988 and 1993 (described below as subseries 2.2.4) are not described here further than at this series level; see the Container List for a breakdown by subseries. Elwyn Cutler is the primary crusade director reflected in this series. Among his files are a series of manuals in boxes 445, 446, 447 and 448 for coordinating various aspects of crusade planning and preparation such as "Collegiate Outreach" (folder 445-8) and "Finance Committee" (folder 446-6). Other crusades documented if only briefly include: 1983 Central Florida, 1984 British Columbia, 1985 Southern California, 1986 Washington DC, 1987 South Carolina, 1989 Arkansas, 1989 Mission Quebec. Although most of Jeannie Hickman's files appear in connection with specific crusades, there are a few which were more general, including sample materials for various events from this time period identified by crusade function. In most cities there was an aspect of community service tied into the crusade, predominantly during this time period either called Love In Action (folders 447-4, 452-14, 455-6,7,8, 458-8,9, 469-4 through 11, 470-1,2, 478-9,10, 484-9) or Feeding the Hungry in Jesus' Name (folders 454-1, 456-11). Interaction between crusade offices is documented in mailings sent to Cutler from the Arkansas Crusade (folders 450-13 to 22) and Mission Quebec offices (folders 451-1 to 8). Also documented through these various events are church leadership training rallies (folders 458-1,2,3, 477-7).
Exceptional items: A single file (folder 442-9) relates to the 1989 Evangelicazios Konferencia in Budapest at which Phillips was a participant and speaker. For the Pacific Northwest Crusade there are a few files related to the Love-in-Action program which addressed various community human needs such as hunger and homelessness. Folder update packet contains a copy of the Crusade Update newspaper which features short biographical sketches of many of the crusade staff. Folder 445-4 consists of the Lifestyle Witnessing notebook; see folders 454-2, 456-13, 458-7) for the seminars held in conjunction with crusades. Folder 452-8 refers to Roman Catholic involvement in crusades. Coordination with and involvement of the African American community is documented for the 1992 Pacific Northwest Crusade in folder 461-6.
Subseries 2.2.4: Crusades
Arrangement: Chronological, alphabetical within each event: 1988 Buffalo-Niagara, 1989 Central New York (Syracuse), 1990 Capital District (Albany), 1991 Washington State (Seattle, Tacoma), 1991 Northern New Jersey, 1991 Central Park (New York City), 1992 Pacific Northwest (Portland), 1993 Columbus. The 1992 Pacific Northwest Crusade files are further subdivided into four alphabetical subseries: Steve Nelson (crusade director), Jeannie Hickman (crusade office manager), Pam Furlow (secretary) and Pat Borgens.
Date Range: 1987-1993
Volume: 13.5 cubic feet
Boxes: 453-485, 495 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Correspondence, reports, statistics, memos, financial information, articles and press coverage, etc.
Correspondents: Tom Phillips, Steve Nelson, Elwyn Cutler, Jeannie Hickman, Dorothy Bennett, Pam Furlow, Pam Borgens, church and community leaders, BGEA staff
Notes: These files document the planning and preparation for the crusades for which Phillips was the senior director. The files themselves are those of Phillips's subordinates and those in the crusade office, including the on-site crusade director and his staff. The most substantially documented crusade is the 1992 Pacific Northwest Crusade (Portland, Oregon).
Exceptional items: Folders 464-3,4,5,6 document a church growth seminar conducted during the 1992 Pacific Northwest Crusade.
Series 3: International Ministries (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Arrangement: Subdivided into three subseries by crusade directors: Henry Holley, Blair Carlson, Bob Williams, outlined as follows:
Date range: 1957-1995
Volume: 90.7 cubic feet
Geographic coverage: International unless otherwise noted.
Notes: This series records Billy Graham's international crusades for which Holley and Carlson were crusade directors between the 1970s and 1995, and over which Bob Williams was the director beginning in 1993. Both Holley's and Carlson's files are further subdivided, documenting a few domestic crusades as well. At the center of the series are Holley's and Carlson's files documenting the series of Graham's crusades spanning from the 1960s into the 1990s. Taken along with Walter Smyth's and the North American Ministries series, these three series document most of Graham's crusades in the US and around the world. To incorporate meetings led by BGEA associate evangelists to the picture, also see Collections 4, 12 and 13.
Subseries 3.1: Henry Holley files (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Arrangement: Subdivided into subseries as outlined:
Date range: 1957-1994
Volume: 42.3 cubic feet
Boxes: 190-279, 299-306, 442, 488 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Some domestic but predominantly international
Subseries 3.1.1: Henry Holley general files
Date range: 1967-1989
Volume: 1.0 cubic feet
Boxes: 190-192 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Calendars, correspondence, telegrams, internal BGEA memos, reports, project proposals
Correspondents: BGEA staff and Team members, including Walter Smyth, Sterling Huston, George Wilson, T.W. Wilson, and with civic, religious and business leaders.
Notes: These documents range from personal notes to routine correspondence or form letters, whether from within the BGEA (sometimes to or from Holley while in other cases in which a letter was copied to him) or with contacts Holley had in the business, religious and civic spheres. The subjects of the communication range from expressions of thanks to coordinating meetings to reporting on crusade planning developments. This subseries also includes Holley's files (folders 191-4 through 18) related to BGEA Team meetings between 1967 and 1987, largely documenting arrangements and program; several of these files include reports submitted to or presented at the meeting. Intermingled with these are files corresponding to several other meetings in which Holley participated, like the 1972 Associate Crusade Coordinators' Seminar (folder 191-8) or the 1978 World Missionary and Evangelism Working Sessions (folder 191-14). The telegrams in folders 192-1 and 2 are related to arrangements, either from Holley or to him primarily by Mary Becker of the Minneapolis office.
Exceptional items: Folder 190-5 includes Holley's 1979 report on his financial development trip to East Asia on behalf of the 1980 Consultation on World Evangelization (COWE). Folders 191-1 through 3 document some preliminary thinking in the late 1980s on an international satellite mission as a means for global evangelism.
Subseries 3.1.2: Henry Holley city reports
Arrangement: International (alphabetical) and domestic (alphabetical).
Date range: 1969-1987
Volume: 1.3 cubic feet
Boxes: 192-195 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Primarily international in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, with several domestic in the US (Alaska, Houston, Washington DC)
Type of documents: Reports, correspondence, memos, lists, handwritten notes, maps, clippings, telegrams
Correspondents: Holley, Smyth, BGEA staff, contacts in countries under investigation
Notes: The most common feature of these files are Holley's reports (many but not all in a binder or notebook), submitted to Smyth following an investigation trip, assessing the suitability and conditions for holding a Billy Graham crusade there. The reports include relevant facts and demographics (including available facilities, churches and active Christian organizations, previous evangelistic meetings), key contacts, description of local support for such an enterprise, Holley's observations and recommendations. Accompanying the reports may be preliminary country information and demographics, maps, handwritten notes about meetings or gathered information, memos, correspondence and telegrams related to arrangements or contacts for Holley's trip, and preliminary crusade planning. Several exceptions to this are the Singapore and Washington DC files (folder 195-1 and 9) which contain no reports, the Hong Kong file (folder 193-3) which is more of Holley's status report on crusade preparations already underway, and the Australia or Germany files (folders 192-4, 195-7) which relate to the BGEA's Australian and German offices and operations than an anticipated crusade. The Indonesia file (folder 193-4) is an example of a location which Holley did not recommend for a crusade.
Subseries 3.1.3: Henry Holley: Crusade general files
Arrangement: Alphabetically by crusade function. Legal folders were filed together at the end of the subseries in boxes 213, 214 and 215 and therefore overlap boxes 195 through 212. Further divided into two subseries, the first primarily spanning 1970-1984 (boxes 195-215), the second 1975-1994 (boxes 299-306).
Date range: 1957-1994 (bulk 1970-1994)
Volume: 10.8 cubic feet
Boxes: 195-215, 299-306, 488 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Predominantly international with some early domestic
Type of documents: Duplicated crusade materials, typically the types of documents which comprise a crusade sample book
Notes: These files consist primarily of materials arranged according to crusade function rather than crusade event. Therefore, for example, Holley has brought together brochures printed for the various crusades he directed into one file (folder 195-11). There are a wide variety of functions documented, a few of which are hinted at in the Container List which follows in this guide. Among the main headings are Administration, Advertising, Arrangements, Badges, Biographical profiles, Brochures, Counseling, Crusade information folders, Crusade News, Crusade organization, Delegations, English committee, Equipment, Executive Committee, Extension, Films, Finance, Follow-up, Group booking, Hospitality, Hotel, Interpreters, Laymen, Livelink (satellite transmission), Local church, Logo, Media/Publicity, "Meet the Team," Men's Committee, Message ideas, Military, Ministers, Music, National Prayer Breakfast (Philippines), Nightly programs, Office procedures, Operation Andrew, Personal, Prayer, Press, Printing, Professionals, Programs, Publicity, Rallies, Reception, Samples, Schedules, School of Christian Writing, Schools of Evangelism, Security, Smyth reports, Statistical reports, Team, TV/Radio, Thank you letters, Tickets, Trip to Asia, Ushers, Visitation, Women's Committee, YES (Youth Evangelism Seminar), Youth. Among the exceptions to this general pattern are Holley's Address book (folder 196-4), Critical correspondence (folder 198-3), Message ideas and outlines (folder 204-9), and Personal (folder 207-3). Box 197 contains a series of files which consist of the BGEA's biographical sketches used for crusade press kits. The reports in folder 210-3 ("Smyth reports") are not reports generated by Smyth but rather those Holley either submitted to Walter Smyth or of which Smyth received a copy. Folder 302-18 consists of the Japanese-language copy an overview, "Who Is Billy Graham?" (prepared at the time of the Mission 94 in Japan) especially highlighting with text and photographs his relationships with American presidents and other world leaders, his stand on human rights issues, his response to international disasters, and his international crusades from the 1960s into the 1990s. The actual volume is filed in BGEA Photo Album XXVI (26), described in Location Record: Photo Albums. Copies (mostly black & white) of the album photos (mostly color) in the volume were also filed separately under appropriate Photo File folder titles.
Subseries 3.1.4: Henry Holley: Crusade counseling files
Arrangement: This subseries isn't obviously arranged nor was it reordered. These files do bring together material Holley had gathered on the counseling and follow-up aspect of a BGEA crusade. While this subseries is not a part of the previous series, it parallels the counseling portion of that subseries.
Date range: 1962-1978 (bulk 1967-1970)
Volume: 1.2 cubic feet
Boxes: 216-218 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Sample materials, form letters, memos, manuals, instructions to counselors and supervisors, job descriptions, newsletters, lecture notes and outlines
Notes: Notes from Christian Life & Witness classes (folders 217-1ff) appear to be from a class Holley participated in or observed, while notes in folders 218-3 and 218-4 from Bible discussion leadership training appear to be from sessions Holley himself taught. Co-Labor Corps material (folder 217-14) describes the role volunteers played in the processing of inquirer forms and cards and compiling statistics.
Exceptional items: Folder 216-1 consists of a small notebook produced by the BGEA which gathers crusade statistics between 1947 and 1971; the information in the notebook adds nothing new to already available information but does illustrate a tool that crusade staff had as a resource. Folder 218-5 contains material which documents the canvassing of a neighborhood to conduct a survey before a crusade to share the gospel door-to-door and ask questions to assess community attitudes to the crusade and evaluate the effectiveness of publicity material.
Subseries 3.1.5: Henry Holley: Early crusades files
Date range: 1965-1971
Volume: .8 cubic feet
Boxes: 219-220 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: International and domestic crusades
Type of documents: Correspondence, crusade newsletters, promotional material, statistics, news releases, schedules, background information on local context, telegrams,
Correspondents: Holley, Forrest Laymen, local Christian and civic leaders,
Notes: These files span the time from Holley's earliest crusade involvement in Billy Graham's 1965 Hawaii Crusade through the series of international crusades in the 1970s and 80s.
Exceptional items: Folder 219-1 includes a letter written to Holley by Forrest Layman when Holley was still enlisted in the Marines but oversaw the Co-Labor Corps for Billy Graham's 1965 Hawaii Crusade. Folder 220-4 includes a newspaper for youth workers during the 1970 New York Crusade, very much capturing the graphic style of other Jesus People and counter-culture newspapers of the period. Folder 220-12 contains Billy Graham's reply to a published critique by the Conference of the Christian Student Movement in Rhineland and Westfalia (Germany) of Graham's position on social issues (the critique is included). Two interview transcripts (c. 1970) are also included.
Subseries 3.1.6: Henry Holley: Evangelism congresses files
Date range: 1962-1983
Volume: .5 cubic feet
Boxes: 221-222 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: International and domestic evangelism congresses
Type of documents: Program materials, press releases, lists of participants, and congress papers, correspondence, memos, lists, telegrams
Notes: The congresses represented include the 1968 Asia-South Pacific Congress on Evangelism, 1969 US Congress on Evangelism, 1971 European Congress on Evangelism, 1974 International Congress on World Evangelization, 1980 Consultation on World Evangelization, '80 Evangelization Crusade (series of evangelistic meetings in Korea), the 1981 American Festival of Evangelism, and the 1983 International Conference for Itinerant Evangelists (Amsterdam '83). Holley appears to attended these as a participant rather than as an administrator, although for the 1980 Consultation he traveled throughout East Asia (where many of the international crusades over which he was director were located) to raise funds to sponsor the meeting. The most heavily documented of the meetings is Amsterdam '83, for which Holley was director of development.
Subseries 3.1.7: Henry Holley: Honor America Day files
Arrangement: Small subseries has no apparent order
Date range: 1970-1979
Volume: .5 cubic feet
Boxes: 222-223 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Correspondence, lists, programs, planning materials, the text of Graham's message, telegrams, promotional material.
Correspondents: Holley, Sterling Huston, religious, political, entertainment and civic leaders
Background: This Honor America Day was held on July 4, 1979, sponsored by the American Historic and Cultural Society to "publically affirm that America is one nation under God, that our liberty is divinely given, and to call our country to turn in recommitment to the God-centered faith of our Founding Fathers." Holley was the BGEA's representative for coordinating Billy Graham's and the BGEA involvement in the event. Graham's role included serving as one of a number of directors of the event, at which he was the featured speaker. and which the BGEA strongly supported, especially by encouraging participating in the event by the religious community in the area near Washington DC. Although not funded by the BGEA, the organization supplied personnel, travel and some services from its Minneapolis office. Holley helped establish an inter-religious council to lend visible support to religious participation in the celebration.
Notes: Holley's files record his interaction with Society staff and executives, event planners and participants, and BGEA staff. One file (folder 223-5) records the event at Cody, Wyoming, which initiated the Society's 21-day series of events which ended with the Honor America Day celebration.
Exceptional items: Folder 222-11 contains Holley's report to Billy Graham a month before the event, outlining preparations, and folder 223-3 contains his early-March 1979 report to Walter Smyth.
Subseries 3.1.8: Henry Holley: Billy Graham Center files
Arrangement: Alphabetical by file title
Date range: 1970-1983 (bulk 1981)
Volume: .4 cubic feet
Boxes: 223-224 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Type of documents: Correspondence, reports, memos, proposals, handwritten notes, sample proposals for another campaign
Correspondents: Holley, fund-raising committee chairman William Walton, Bill Shoemaker
Background: Holley was appointed by Billy Graham to assist the Billy Graham Center in a 1981 fund-raising campaign for the Center by coordinating events in cities where Graham had held crusades during the 1970s. Holley was loaned to Wheaton College and reported to Center director Bill Shoemaker, who was coordinating the fund raising effort.
Notes: While including some background documents which record the earliest history of the Graham Center and its dedication on the campus of Wheaton College in 1980, the majority of the documents relate to the fund raising campaign Holley was involved in. Two files (folders 224-7 and 224-8 document a fund-raising campaign launched by Campus Crusade for Christ called Here's Life to raising $1 billion to fulfill the Great Commission. These files appear to have used as an example of another campaign.
Subseries: 3.1.9: Henry Holley: International crusade files
Arrangement: Chronological by crusade, further subdivided with alphabetically arranged files for each crusade
Date range: 1963-1994
Volume: 25.4 cubic feet
Boxes: 225-274, 276-279, 299, 442 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Japan, Korea, Brazil, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines, Singapore, Japan
Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, business cards, evangelistic tracts, reports (status, briefing, other), financial records, statistics, press kits and news releases, crusade samples, background orientation information, news clippings, blank stationary, official invitations to crusade events, Holley's report following an investigation trip to assess the suitability of a crusade in a location, and Holley's address card files.
Correspondents: Walter Smyth, Eva Prior, Blair Carlson, Billy Graham, BGEA executives and staff, missionaries in the country of the crusade, church officials and representatives, national political figures (including highest heads of state), civic and business leaders, crusade committee chairpersons, and representatives from the BGEA office if one was established in the country. Figures which stand out in the records of some crusades include: Korea '73 (Billy Kim)
Notes: The files in this large subseries cover the entire span of international crusades for which Holley served as crusade director. For Mission France (1986), Holley acted as a special representative of Walter Smyth while Blair Carlson filled the post of crusade director, while for the final crusade in the subseries, Mission 94 in Tokyo, Holley was again the crusade director. Holley's files document his coordination with the BGEA, with local officials and church representatives, and with crusade committees. Many of the documents for each crusade are in the corresponding national language. While in many cases, the materials are original documents, most of those for the 1967 Tokyo Crusade are photocopies. The most extensively documented crusades are the 1980 Japan Crusade (which occurred in a number of cities) and Mission 94 in Tokyo, followed by the 1977 Manila Crusade. In many cases, a School of Evangelism was held at the same time, so these are documented as well. Holley appears to have made it a practice of courtesy to provide various people with a commemorative photograph either in which they appeared or was representative of the significance of the event; some of the correspondence documents these and thanks expressed to Holley. There is often a file containing material which documents the responsibilities or activities of Holley's wife, Bettie. Boxes 245 and 246 contain Holley's correspondence files with various BGEA staff involved in some way in the crusade (Walter Smyth, Leighton Ford, Cliff Barrows, Holley's son Hank Holley, Millie Dienert, Don Bailey and Bob Williams). Holley's address card files cover his contacts in Manila, Singapore and Japan during the crusades in those countries between 1977 and 1980. The Mission 94 (Tokyo) subseries begins with an office arrangement list for the files; although some files were out of this order when received and other files are not listed there, this arrangement has been retained with several extra files inserted into it. A substantial number of files are included relating to the English Language Committee (ELC) which oversaw the targeting of the English-speaking community for the crusade.
Exceptional items: Folder 225-5 contains a small 1973 directory of "Christian Missions in Korea," including addresses, phone numbers, and contact persons. The two photo calendars in folder 225-6 were gifts to Holley from Korean evangelist Billy Kim, produced by Kim's mission, Christian Service, Inc., which include many photos depicting Korean culture, industry, religious practices, historical sites, and churches and other Christian events. Folder 227-1 contains an autographed book authored by the well-known Brazilian soccer player Pele; it is unclear whether this was presented to Holley or Billy Graham. Folder 227-9 records coordination of an appearance by the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury during Graham's 1974 Rio de Janeiro crusade. Folder 228-2 contains a photocopy of a booklet produced at the time of BGEA Associate Evangelist Roy Gustafson's crusade in Hong Kong in 1963. When President Chiang Kai-shek passed away in early 1975, preparations were already well underway for the Republic of China crusade later that year, so the collection includes material from his memorial service conducted by Billy Graham in Washington, DC; a transcript of Graham's remarks are included in folder 230-2 as is a letter of thanks to the Holleys from Madame Chiang Kai-shek; it is unclear whether any of the material in the file is for a similar commemoration in Taiwan. Folder 240-6 documents an event Holley participated in, the 100th anniversary of the Korean Church, perhaps due to his connections with Korean Christians and Billy Graham's 1973 crusade. Graham's transcribed statement upon his departure from Korea in 1973 is included (folder 225-7).

Notes: The files in this subseries reflect Holley's duties as requested by Smyth, which included overseeing arrangements and personnel matters. A participant list (as of February 15, 1986) is in folder 225-5, listing names in alphabetical order within selected countries (Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan), all of which were countries in which Holley had worked as a director of a Billy Graham crusade during the 1970s and early 1980s.
Subseries 3.2: Blair Carlson files (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Arrangement: Subdivided into the following subseries: International Ministries general files, Personal correspondence, Country files, Crusade function files, Crusade files
Date Range: 1963-1995
Volume: 47.7 cubic feet
Subseries 3.2.1: Crusade function files
Arrangement: Alphabetical by function or activity
Date Range: 1967-1994
Volume: 12.3 cubic feet
Boxes: 335-366 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)
Geographic coverage: Some domestic but primarily international
Type of documents: Crusade samples, correspondence, memos, reports, statistics, publicity materials
Correspondents: Carlson, Henry Holley, Walter Smyth, other BGEA executives, community church leaders
Subjects: Evangelistic work, various aspects of crusade planning, execution and follow-up
Notes: This series parallels and somewhat overlaps Henry Holley's found in Subseries 3.1.3 (Carlson had worked under Holley's supervision and may have adopted this filing methodology from him). Carlson's files cover a later time period but there is some overlap between them; duplicates where noticed have therefore not been included here in the collection. Like the Holley files, Carlson's files are arranged to bring together samples, planning documents and some correspondence related to various specific functions of various crusades. The predominant categories include Administration, Arrangements, Children, Christian Life & Witness, Counseling, Finance, Follow-up, Group bookings, Media, Ministers, Music, Prayer, Satellite, Stewards, Team, Video, Women, Youth. International crusades are predominantly represented, including Mission 89, Manila (1977), Republic of China (1975 in Taipei), Hong Kong (1975), Mission England (1984-1985), Singapore (1978), Mission Helsinki (1987), Mission France (1986), Sydney (1979), Berlin (1990), Japan (1980), Mission Quebec (1990 in Montreal), Paris (1963), Rio de Janeiro (1973), Scotland (1991), and Vozrozhdeniye '92 (in Moscow). Of these, documentation for the later crusades, for which Carlson had more responsibility, predominate. Domestic crusades documented include Southeastern Michigan (1976 in Pontiac), Southern California (1963 in Los Angeles), Michiana (1977 in South Bend, Indiana), Southern California (1985 in Anaheim), Southern Alberta (1981 in Calgary), Greater Puget Sound (1983 in Tacoma), Central Florida (1983 in Orlando), Greater Las Vegas - Reno (1980), Alaska (1984 in Anchorage), Rochester (1988), Central New York (1989 in Syracuse), Buffalo-Niagara (1988), Golden Horseshoe (1988 in Hamilton, Ontario), New England (1982), Boise/Treasure Valley (1982), Southern New England (1985 in Hartford)
Exceptional items: Folder 340-9 in the Helsinki Crusade files labeled "church history" primarily contains background information on the church in Finland. Folder 345-5 contains counselor testimonies and reports. Folder 358-22 contains the report "Where Are They Now: Churches reflect on Mission England 1984."
Subseries 3.2.2: Crusade files
Arrangement: Chronological by crusade, further subdivided with files alphabetically arranged within each crusade subseries (the Mission France files seemed to be largely lacking the A-C portion which usually includes substantially more files for Administration, Advertising, Arrangements, Children, Christian Life & Witness. The Mission 89 files were lacking files related to the Christian Life & Witness, Counseling, Follow-up) Much of the Pro Christ '93 subseries was received unfoldered and was therefore arranged by the archivist.
Date Range: 1973-1993
Volume: 31.3 cubic feet
Boxes: 366-442, 488-494 (click to see corresponding section of Container Box List)

These files record Carlson's oversight and preparation for the crusades for which he served as director or associate. With the exception of the crusades in Great Britain (Mission England, Mission 89 and Scotland 1991), all occurred in non-English speaking countries, and a significant portion of this subseries is therefore written in French, Finnish, Swedish, German, and Russian (and various other languages of Russian minorities). In countries where the BGEA had an established foreign office (England, Germany), interaction and coordination with these offices is documented as well. Folders 396-4 through 12 record other activities by the International Ministries division, especially related to other missions being planned for Hong Kong, South Africa, South America and Spain. The predominantly recurring categories include Administration, Advertizing, Briefing, Children, Committees, Counseling, English-speaking Community, Executive Committee, Finance, Follow-up, Love in Action, Media, Ministers, Music, Personnel, Program, Samples, Satellite (also referred to as Livelink in some of the subseries), Statistics, Stewards, Team and Translation.

The Mission 89 files also included 239 site surveys for the placement of satellite dishes throughout Great Britain; the surveys were numbered ranging from 301 sequentially through 506 (in some cases there were multiple surveys for a single number. Entire reports were sampled (folder 407-7) while selected pages (cover page, venue details, price quotations, photos) were retained for all (folders 408-5,6,7,8).

The largest part of the subseries, almost half, relates to China and Graham's visit there in 1988, originally scheduled for 1987, including planning documents, and background reports on the country (especially the religious climate). Another sizable section relates to two tours Carlson made, one in western Europe with Bob Williams in mid-1991 in anticipation of Billy Graham's Pro Christ '93 (in Germany), and an Eastern European tour in late-1991 with Williams and Walter Smyth and Bob Williams in anticipation of Pro Christ '93 and Graham's Vozrozhdeniye '92 (in Moscow), each exploring the possibility of extending the reach of these ministries via satellite.

Correspondents: Carlson, clergy, contacts, friends, BGEA staff
Notes: This subseries, identified by Carlson as "personal," consists of letters to and from him during the period when he was coordinating crusades in Great Britain, France, and Finland. The nature of the correspondence is expressions of thanks for assistance, updating friends on his and his wife's ministry, receiving information about ministry throughout the world, and answering questions about BGEA plans and activities. It was during this period that Carlson was married to Elizabeth Reitz, so his letters refer to plans for this event and their married life and ministry together.

NOTE: Duplicates found during processing were discarded at the request of the BGEA. All artifacts were transferred to the Billy Graham Training Center - The Cove in Asheville, North Carolina. Also among the artifacts sent to the Archives were samples from other non-BGEA events, perhaps used as models for those created for BGEA crusades; these were discarded at the request of the BGEA.
These materials were received from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association from 1976-2003.
