Welcome to the Billy Graham Center Archives Survival Page!


There are three different archives on campus. We are the Billy Graham Center Archives, which collects, preserves and makes available for use historic documents about the part North American Protestant evangelicals have played in the Great Commission. We can be found on the 3rd floor of the BGC in the Manuscripts Reading Room. Our collections are a unique resource that you can use for your classes or just visit for your own personal interest. Come and see us!

We have documents going back to before the American Revolution, although most of our material if from the 20th century. Among the type of documents we have are diaries, newspaper clippings, letters, organization files, maps, posters, photographs, scrapbooks, slides, films, videos, digital records, and more. You can visit our main web page at: http://www2.wheaton.edu/bgc/archives/archhp1.html It contains a vast amount about what is in the BGC Archives.

Every month, we put up a document about a story from the Archives - everything from the evangelist on the Titanic to missionary money to Billy Graham’s first trip abroad. You can find the bulletin boards at: http://www2.wheaton.edu/bgc/archives/bulletin/vault.htm
