Oral Roberts Dead At 91
12/15/2009

Evangelist Oral Roberts, who rose from tent revivals to found a multimillion-dollar organization and an Oklahoma university bearing his name, has died. He was 91.

His spokesman A. Larry Ross said by phone from Carrollton,

Texas, that Roberts died Tuesday of complications from pneumonia in

Newport Beach, Calif. Roberts was hospitalized after a fall on

Saturday. He had survived two heart attacks in the 1990s and a

broken hip in 2006.

Roberts overcame tuberculosis at age 17, and credited that

triumph with leading him to become one of the country's most famous

ministers.

By the 1960s and '70s, the Oklahoma-born Roberts was reaching

millions around the world through broadcasting, publications and

personal appearances. Oral Roberts University, chartered in 1963,

became a Tulsa landmark.
