Scope and Content
Almost all the records in this collection date from the years 1970 and 1971. The first part of the collection contains Cover's correspondence, schedules, expense reports and the above mentioned Policies and Procedures Booklet. Then follows files for the associate crusades Cover worked on. For almost every crusade there is a file on invoices, one of personal records and one of shipping orders. The last part of the collection contains samples of the materials used in every crusade, such as newsletters, letters to pastors, buttons, songbooks, etc. Especially interesting are the sample books in box 3. These were shown to local crusade committees to give them an idea of what they would need and how much it would cost.
These records were part of an accession received by the Billy Graham Center from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on March 3, 1976.
There are restrictions on the use of this collection.
