Background
William “Billy” Graham (b. Nov. 7, 1918 – d. Feb. 21, 2018) was a prominent American evangelist and ordained Southern Baptist minister, who rose to international prominence in 1949-50. He led annual evangelistic campaigns, called “Crusades,” from 1947 until his retirement at 2005. Among Graham’s many accomplishments, he also served as a spiritual advisor to a number of United States presidents from Harry S Truman to Barack Obama. Graham was also friends with televangelist Robert Schuller and radio evangelist Dr. Charles E. Fuller. Graham’s connection to Fuller Theological Seminary grew from his relationships with its founders Charles E Fuller and Harold J Ockenga, and its faculty Carl Henry, Harold Lindsell, and Wilbur Smith. Graham served as a Fuller Seminary Board of Trustee member from 1959-1968 and Senior Trustee from 1968-2018.
