National Pack Rat Day

May 17, 2020

Today is “National Pack Rat Day.” Ruth Bell Graham was affectionately called a pack rat because of her tendency to document events and hold on to mementos. The bookstore at the Billy Graham Library is named after Ruth’s Attic – where most of those treasures were held in the Graham family home until they were transferred the Graham Center at Wheaton College and the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove and the Billy Graham Library were built with display cases and archive vaults to hold the items. Part of the Ruth’s Attic logo also pays homage to her pack rat way of living with image of an attic mouse or “pack rat.”

You can read some of Ruth’s writings in her book Legacy of a Pack Rat.

Today, we are sharing with you a coloring sheet of the Ruth’s Attic Pack Rat.
