Billy Graham was born in 1918 in Charlotte, North Carolina. He went to Taft High School. In 1935, he graduated from Wheaton College with a bachelor’s degree in history and psychology. After college he married Ruth McNeill on July 9, 1940 in Chicago, Illinois. In 1941, they had their first child Paul; then they had a daughter named Nancy the following year and a son named Franklin three years later. Graham and his family moved to Montreat, North Carolina in 1945. In 1948 he became a pastor at the College Park church in Charlotte and remained there until retiring from there in 1975.
