The Billy Graham Center serves to “stimulate global evangelism” by thinking missions, training evangelists, and transmitting the gospel alongside God’s worldwide church. It includes a Museum which houses over 20,000 square feet of permanent exhibits dedicated to the message and history of evangelism in America. Temporary exhibits are mounted each season which reflect a wide range of evangelical interest and concern. The Museum collection of over 25,000 objects is particularly strong in graphic materials related to nineteenth-century American Christianity. The collection is open to researchers by appointment. The Archives of the Billy Graham Center is a unique resource for students and researchers working in church history, missiology, communication, evangelism, and many other fields. The 607 collections occupying more than 7,900 linear feet contain unpublished documents of North American Protestant nondenominational missions and evangelism history. This includes the materials of organizations such as Africa Inland Mission, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Prison Fellowship, Youth for Christ; individuals such as John and Elisabeth Stam, Billy Sunday, Corrie Ten Boom, R. A. Torrey; oral history interviews; and an extensive film and video collection.
The Center for Applied Christian Ethics (CACE) supports the mission of Wheaton College by promoting and encouraging the formation of moral character and the application of biblical ethics to contemporary moral decisions. The Marion E. Wade Center is a special collection of the books and papers of seven British authors: Owen Barfield, G. K. Chesterton, C. S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Dorothy L. Sayers, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams. These writers are well-known for their impact on contemporary literature and Christian thought; together they produced over four hundred books. Recently moved to its own building on the northwest edge of campus, the Center houses more than 14,000 books including first editions and critical works, and more than 2,300 volumes from C.S. Lewis’ personal library. Other holdings include letters, manuscripts, audio and video tapes, artwork, dissertations, periodicals, photographs, and related materials. Any of these resources may be studied in the quiet surroundings of the Kilby Reading Room. In addition, the Wade Center has a museum where such pieces as C.S. Lewis’ wardrobe and writing desk, Charles Williams’ bookcases, J.R.R. Tolkien’s desk, Pauline Baynes’ original map of Narnia, and a tapestry from Dorothy L. Sayers’ home can be seen. Photographs, rare books and manuscripts, and other small items of memorabilia round out the displays. An international study center, the Wade Center was established in 1965 by Dr. Clyde S. Kilby, and later named after Marion E. Wade, founder of The ServiceMaster Company, L.P. SEVEN: An Anglo-American Literary Review has been published by the Wade Center since 1980. As a forum for both the general and the specialized reader, SEVEN prints articles and reviews relating to all of the Wade Center authors.
