GRAHAM: I miss Dad’s counsel and sharp wit
patrick column
This is one of my favorite pictures of my dad, Dr. William Graham. He is shown on the right with then Republican candidate Ronald Reagan during Reagan’s first successful bid for president in 1980.
Through my various writings, most of you have gotten to know my mother, Anna Graham, pretty well by now, but you are probably less familiar with my dad, Dr. William Hardin Graham. “The other Billy Graham” as he used to say. Father’s Day seems like a good time to rectify this slight on my part. My Dad was a Depression era baby, born in Birmingham, Alabama, on April 27, 1932.
