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.
This collection contains microfiche copies of the extant Billy Sunday archival material housed at various archives across the U.S.A. including at the Billy Graham Center and Grace College (Winona Lake, Indiana). As well it contains microfilmed copies of the press coverage of many of the Billy Sunday campaigns assembled by Adam L. Lutzweiler and James Lutzweiler. The archival material includes correspondence, organizational material, and ephemera. 378 Microfiche, 10 Microfilm rolls.
