"Could you come in one night and be with us on the platform this week? We would be thrilled to have you." Letter from Billy Graham to Percy Crawford, August 13, 1957. From Collection 357, Box 1, Folder 13.

The platform personnel of every service included a mixture of BGEA staff, ministers (mainly from New York but also from other parts of the United States), members of the executive committee or crusade committee, and believers from various walks of life. They came to pray, make announcements about the crusade, and to give their testimony about their own Christian faith.
