-l10RESORT HOTEL HOUSES BILLY GRAHAM' S ALMA MATER By HAMPTON DUNN DUNEDIN --Dr. W. T. Watson, founder and president of Trinity College, thinks it's safe to say "that we're the only Bible College with an Olympic swimming pool." A ghost of Florida's real estate boom, the building which now houses Billy Graham's alma mater once was a renowned resort hotel, called the Fenway. It's the third boomtime structure that has served as a home for the school. Trinity was born as Florida Bible College during the depression years of the early 30s and first operated in the old elegant Temple Terrace Country Club, at nearby Tampa. This was the campus where the tall, gangling, handsome Billy Graham learned the rudiments of Christian preaching. He was graduated from the school in 1940, was president of his class and editor of the school paper. Graham also preached his first sermons at local skid row missions, at trailer camps, at rural small churches. During World War II, gasoline rationing created a problem for Dr. Watson and his staff who lived in St. Petersburg. He acquired a defunct private club at Belleair that had once been a swinging gambling palace. The casino part of the old hotel became the college chapel. Soon this facility was too small. In 1960, Trinity moved to the present quarters here, thanks in part to a $10,000 gift from Alumnus Graham. The famed evangelist is honored by the school: A newly constructed 15,000 square foot one-story building on the campus houses a Bible museum, rooms for sacred paintings, and the Billy Graham Hall of Evangelism.
