Billy Graham's Archives Being Transferred To Charlotte

The late evangelist Billy Graham's archives are being transferred from Illinois to the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte.

The Billy Graham Evangelical Association said Friday that the archival material includes TV recordings from his Billy Graham crusades, as well as transcripts of his sermons, press clippings and oral histories.

The material is currently kept at Wheaton College, where Graham graduated in 1943. It will remain there until June 1.

The Billy Graham Library receives more than 200,000 visitors a year.

The association says the transfer is part of a long-planned effort to consolidate operations in North Carolina.
