    Scope and Contents

    Billy Sunday (1862-1935) was a professional baseball player before his conversion at the Pacific Garden Rescue Mission and subsequent career as an evangelist. Renowned or his theatrical antics on the platform and his organizational abilities, Sunday contributed significantly to the definition of mass evangelism in North America, and beyond, during the twentieth century. Observers compared him with Sam Jones and Gipsy Smith. He began his evangelistic campaigns in Garner, Iowa in 1896 and held campaigns throughout the nation. He retired to Winona Lake, Indiana, where he worked with people including J. A. Huffman to develop formational opportunities for younger evangelists and pastors.
