Biography of Willis Graham Haymaker

Willis Graham Haymaker was born August 6, 1895 in Shippenburg, Pennsylvania, the son of Elizabeth and Edward Graham Haymaker. His parents had been Presbyterian missionaries in Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) until an outbreak of malaria forced them to move east. In 1905 the family moved to Winona Lake, Indiana. Haymaker was educated at Winona Academy (graduated 1913) and Winona College (graduated 1917) and married Dorothy Elizabeth Taylor of Winona Lake on July 27, 1921. They had four children: Charles Edward, Martha Lou, Willis Jr. and James.

Haymaker served as assistant to Bob Jones, Sr.'s revival rally director, Don Cochran 1916-1917; instructor in the U.S. Navy, 1917-1918; rally director for Bob Jones, Sr., 1918-1927; campaign director for Gypsy Smith, Sr., 1928; for George T. Stephens, 1929-1934; for Joe Henry Hankins and Jimmy Johnson, 1935-1936; for Bob Jones, Sr., 1940-1945; for Dr. Paul Rood and John R. Rice 1945-1949; crusade director for Billy Graham 1949-1970. As the BGEA's first crusade director, he helped establish the plan of organization that was followed in all the campaigns of Billy Graham and associate evangelists of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

In 1931, Haymaker, his wife and children moved to Lenoir, North Carolina. There he became a ruling elder of the First Presbyterian Church of Lenoir. In Lenoir, he continued to act as an advisor to many people interested in evangelism. He died in 1980.

Scope and Content

[NOTE: In the Scope and Content description, the notation "Folder 1-1" means Box 1, Folder 1.]

This collection is divided into four sections to reflect both the informational and physical nature of the records. These reflect roughly the order the records were in when they were received by the Archives. These four sections are : I. Campaigns, Rallies and Tours; II. General BGEA Materials; III. Private papers of Haymaker; and IV. Scrapbooks.

I. Crusades, Rallies, and Tours Files. This section has all the materials relating to specific campaigns, rallies or tours. Most campaigns have at least a correspondence file and a forms file. The correspondence file contains all non-form letters, memos, financial records, press releases, etc. concerning the campaign unless there are separate folders for such material. The form folder contains all form letters, small posters, tickets, forms, etc. relating to the campaign. The folders are arranged chronologically according to the date of the campaign. The dates in parenthesis on each folder are not the dates of the campaign but the dates of material in the folder. The dates of various campaigns can be found by consulting the chronology in this register. The initials n.d. on some folders means it contains materials which are not dated. Also included are files on invitations from communities to conduct a campaign.

As BGEA crusade director, Haymaker had the responsibility of going to a city which was planning a Billy Graham campaign and there setting up the local organization which would run the campaign with the assistance and leadership of the Billy Graham team. Folder 9-2 contains a letter that outlines campaign procedures at the very beginning of the BGEA's existence. The correspondence for the various campaigns shows how he was involved in most of the preliminary arrangement from advertisement to personnel selection to (in the early campaigns) the construction of large tabernacles. (In Albuquerque and Chattanooga, his tabernacles were still standing many years later.) For example, folder 1-16 includes correspondence with Jerry Beavan about the type and number of outdoor billboards to rent; folder 1-14 contains an auditorium rental agreement, a report on cottage prayer meetings, and instructions for participating ministers; folder 9-9 contains a contract for the construction of a steel frame for the tabernacle for the 1952 Pittsburgh campaign; folder 9-11 contains a letter outlining the requirements for a portable metal tabernacle; folder 9-11 has correspondence with Rev. E. J. Rollings about preparations for the 1953 Detroit campaign among labor unions and fraternal organizations; folder 5-47 has a newsletter about facilities for the deaf at the Tri-County Crusade; folder 1-12 has the format for a Billy Graham Prayertime radio program; folder 5-41 has plans for a special orientation program on evangelism for local seminary students during the Southern Piedmont campaign (these programs later grew into the Schools of Evangelism); extensive correspondence in folder 9-10 on the arrangements for ushering at the New York campaign; folder 1-17 has a draft of a contract to rent the coliseum in Geddes, NY for the Syracuse Crusade; folder 9-9 has a follow-up report on the results of the Pittsburgh campaign. Similar material on campaign organization can be found in many files.

The information in this collection on the New York Crusade of 1957 is especially complete. Besides extensive correspondence (folder 1-46, among others), the collection contains a complete or nearly complete set of the executive committee minutes (folders 2-1 and 2-2), press releases (folders 3-5), press clippings (folders 2-20 through 3-4; also see collection 360 for clippings on all BGEA campaigns), and forms used for every aspect of the campaign (folders 2-4 through 2-16). There is also a great deal of information for the Oklahoma City (folders 1-34 through 1-36), Louisville (folders 1-40 through 1-42), San Francisco (folders 1-10 through 1-12), Charlotte (folders 4-1 through 4-6), Indianapolis (folders 4-9, 4-10), Miami (folders 4-16 through 5-8) and Durham Crusades (folders 5-27 through 5-29), among others. In the files for the Miami campaign are also included the correspondence and forms concerning the several two-day rallies that Graham and associate evangelists held around Florida at the same time period.

Of especial interest is: Graham's telegram in folder 1-14 about rescheduling the St. Louis meetings so that he could visit American troops in Korea (there is a draft for a similar telegram for the Chattanooga campaign in folder 9-10), correspondence with Lorne Sanny of the Navigators about the follow-up work that organization was doing for the BGEA, the press release in folder 1-21 sent out in response to criticism to Graham's plans to hold meetings in London, the correspondence in folder 9-7 with Christ for Greater Los Angeles (the organization that sponsored Graham's 1949 Los Angeles meetings) about a rally in Hollywood, several 1951 letters in folder 1-46 about plans to hold a campaign in New York. Folder 6-7 includes one from Billy Graham laying out his conditions for such a series of meetings. [See on the web this address:]

II. General BGEA Materials. Included are materials relating to Haymaker's general activities as a crusade director and member of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The material in this section deals with correspondence from and about team members (folders 6-6, 6-7, 6-11, 6-12, 6-14 and 6-18), advertising (folder 6-5), and which cities Billy Graham and his associates should preach in (6-8 and 9-13); yearly schedules of planned campaigns (folder 6-17); inter-office memos and minutes of meetings (6-18 and 9-13); the layout of several of the stadiums where campaigns were to be held (7-2, OS1); and general plans of organization for a hypothetical campaign as the BGEA's procedures became more formalized with the passage of time (folder 6-15; see also the plan for the Pittsburgh campaign in folder 8-9 and the New York campaign in folder 2-12.). Over the years he and the other members of the Association evolved and standardized the methods used in a Graham campaign for planning, finances, following up conversion experiences, publicity, etc. This aspect of Haymaker's work and correspondence relating to general association activities as opposed to a specific campaign is contained in section two. Also of interest is a letter in folder 9-13 from Helen Sunday, wife of evangelist Billy Sunday, about the Graham campaigns and her own activities.

Haymaker, besides working on specific campaigns, helped decide which invitations Billy Graham and other evangelists of the Association should accept and the records also are concerned with the invitations Dr. Graham received from all over the world for speaking engagements. Haymaker, until about 1964, had most of the responsibility for investigating these invitations as to their feasibility and desirability and replying to the impossible or unlikely ones. The likely ones were further discussed and prayed over by other members of Graham's staff. Invitations from many cities and organizations can be found in folders 8-2 through 8-33. The original order of the correspondence has been retained as far as possible. The many letters which were loose in the original box have been put into folders marked General. After these are letters arranged alphabetically, then a group arranged according to geographic location, and then a section of invitations received from schools, colleges, universities and seminaries. Also included in this collection are invitation reports (folder 7-1) which state in summary form some of the invitations received.

III. Private Papers. Section three contains private papers, mainly relating to Haymaker's work for other evangelists and local affairs in his home, Lenoir, NC. Although the Haymaker papers deal almost entirely with the period of his life when he was a campaign director for Billy Graham, especially the years 1949-1967. In folder 6-21 there are some letters relating to the revival campaigns he helped to organize for Gypsy Smith, Sr., and Bob Jones, Sr., but these are relatively few. Of particular interest is a detailed description of a meeting in Shelbyville, IL which he organized for Bob Jones Jr. and Homer Rodeheaver in 1950. This was one of the last, if not the last, meetings Haymaker directed for an evangelist other than of the Graham organization. Oversize folder 1 contains the diagrams of the floor layouts of meetings he directed in 1946 and 1948. Folder 9-1 contains some 1950 correspondence which Haymaker wrote when he was in transition, advising Graham and his associates on campaign work before he was part of the organization.

IV. Scrapbooks. Section six contains the press scrapbooks of the Charlotte, North Carolina campaign and the Columbia, South Carolina campaign. The books have been microfilmed and researchers should consult Collection 360 for these materials.


Most of these records were received by the Center in May, 1977 from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's Atlanta Office. Other boxes of Haymaker's files were sent to the Center by the BGEA in 1982. The first shipment was donated to the BGEA in 1973. The second shipment was apparently donated after Haymaker's death.
