I believe Billy Graham took similiar precautions because there were so many people eager to bear false witness.
I have heard that when he would check into a hotel room, he would reserve an entire floor for the men and an entire floor for the women traveling with him, and after hours the men women were not allowed to mix. Not even his own wife was allowed in his hotel room while he was traveling. Draconian measures? Sure. But effective. No one can even insinuate infidelity in Reverend Graham's part.

It is my understanding that his measures weren't THAT draconian --- i.e., wife in hotel room.
I believe it was always had two or more male witnesses present when anywhere near a woman not a member of his family.
But maybe it depended on the time and place.
And to expound a bit --- it was well known that certain groups were hoping to falsely accuse Graham and had actually set out to do things.
Something like a woman claiming an attack on an elevator --- proved false by a security camera tape --- being the trigger for the precautions.
