52. Ibid.

53. Orr refers to Graham’s visit as having happened “after midnight one Wednesday night” (Full Surrender, 86) and “about 1 a.m.” (Good News in Bad Times, 152).  He also says that the conference was in September (“Preparing for the Revival,” in Revival in Our Time, 34).  The biographers of Dr. Henrietta Mears, organizer of the conference, state that Graham’s late-night visit with Orr happened “in the middle of the week” (Baldwin and Benson, Henrietta Mears And How She Did It! 252).  Graham himself remembers his remarkable experience which followed as being “at Forest Home that August night” (Just As I Am, 164).  Elsewhere he refers to “the last Sunday morning” of the conference (Billy Graham, “Be Filled With the Holy Spirit,” sermon preached at Christ for Greater Los Angeles Campaign, 4 October 1949, audio recording, see Endnote No. 61 for more details).  All of these statements correlate quite well.  A College Briefing Conference typically began on a Sunday evening and ran for one week.  In this instance, it must have run from the evening of Sunday, August 28 through the morning of Sunday, September 4, 1949.  Wednesday was August 31.  After midnight on Wednesday night would technically have been the earliest hour of Thursday, September 1, but in the typical American way of thinking this would still have been considered part of Wednesday night.  Graham’s inner conflict peaked during the latter half of August 31 and was resolved during the first hour or two of September 1.  Therefore, it is only logical that he refers to his experience as having been on an “August night” rather than as having spanned two different calendar dates which is technically true but unnecessarily distractive from the main point of the story.

16. The LEM added several other evangelists on full or part-time bases beginning in 1970 and onward.  One of these was Rev. Robert Griffin who began a new dimension to the LEM’s ministry in 1972 by becoming Eastern Evangelist, serving mostly in New York State and the New England area.  Griffin’s activities on the East Coast led to the formation of the LEM East, not to be confused with the Eastern LEM Fellowship based in Cleveland, Ohio.  Also in 1972, the LEM Canada was incorporated and called Rev. Howie Olson as Regional Director and Evangelist.  These additions significantly increased numbers of LEM evangelistic series (i.e. 131 in 1973 and 111 in 1974, between 40 and 50 percent of those being in New England and Canada).  Since these items are beyond the scope of this appendix, they are not dealt with here in further detail.  Sources for this endnote are:
