The announcement of the Billy Graham Community Life Commons calls us to look ahead to future generations who will be shaped by his legacy. It also compels us to remember the story of Billy Graham when he was Northwestern’s president.
In the average biography of Billy Graham, you’ll probably find at minimum a simple sentence in a timeline: Billy Graham was president of the Northwestern Schools in Minneapolis from 1948 to 1952. Four years.
Four years understandably overshadowed when compared to the breadth and magnitude of Billy Graham’s life and worldwide ministry. Four years that overlapped significant events that would change his life…and Northwestern’s future.
