Brief Description.
This collection consists of several hundred of the cards used by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) to check the progress being made by inquirers who had come forward during Graham's Wheaton, Illinois, meetings (September 27-October 4, 1959). Each form, with the inquirer's name typed in, was given to the local minister for whose church the inquirer had expressed a preference. The minister returned the form, indicating whether the inquirer was attending the church regularly, whether the inquirer planned to become a member, and adding any general comments the minister wished to make. The cards do not appear to be in any particular order.
