Billy Graham and Southern Seminary

November 18, 2014 • Adam Winters

Currently on display in the Archives & Special Collections office of the James P. Boyce Centennial Library is a display chronicling the history of Billy Graham’s relationship with the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  On October 14, 2014, the seminary celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism, and Ministry, the only school in the world that the great evangelist has allowed to bear his name.

In 1956, Southern Seminary became the first repository for Graham’s evangelistic records, which are now indexed and publicly accessible for research within our facilities.  Patrons visiting the archives can view manuscripts, books, crusade files, photographs, audio-visual material, and other paraphernalia chronicling Graham’s evangelistic heritage.  Also on perpetual display is Aileen Ortlip Shea’s famous 1961 oil painting of Graham.

Learn more about Graham’s relationship with Southern Seminary from this article by SBTS head librarian C. Berry Driver published in the Southern Seminary Magazine (Fall 2014):
