The Billy Graham Center Archives

The Billy Graham Center Archives at Wheaton College is a major research collection of unpublished materials relating to North American, Protestant, nondenominational evangelism and global missions efforts. 

Grace in Stacks with Box

At the Billy Graham Center Archives, our mission is to collect and preserve unpublished materials relating to the history of North American, Protestant, nondenominational evangelism and global missions, especially focused on the twentieth century. The BGC Archives strives to make these materials available to scholars, students, and the general public through our manuscripts reading room, outreach endeavors, and more.
