The title is a summary of claims I've read from several informal sources. For example, this site claims:
It was in this environment that Tommy Hicks was welcomed into the presidential office. After Hicks informed the president what he was asking permission for [...] and the president then gave Hicks and the evangelism committee their requests:
- Use of the 45,000 seat Atlantic Stadium
- Free access to state radio and press
- Freedom to preach anywhere they wanted
The evangelistic services began in the 45,000-seat Atlantic Stadium on April 14, 1954, with around 6,000 in attendance (it lasted 52 days).
It wasn’t long till the Atlantic Stadium’s 45,000 seats were maxed out, without even standing room being left. Crowds gathered for blocks around the stadium in every direction. To accommodate those outside the stadium, loudspeakers were installed so they could hear the Gospel message that was being preached every night. Out of necessity, the services were then moved to the 110,000-seat Huracán Stadium on May 22, which also began to overflow
Similarly, the description of this amazon product claims:
He suggested to the local church committee the possibility of hiring a 25,000-seater stadium and employing the press and radio to advertise the meetings. This seemed absolutely absurd but Tommy Hicks, unwavering in his faith, made arrangements to visit the Argentine dictator leader, President Juan Peron. [...] which secured the availability of the Atlantic Stadium with a seating capacity of 25,000. Soon overwhelming crowds forced them to relocate to the Huracán Football Stadium with a seating capacity of 110,000, which also overflowed.
And this site:
The next day the guard greeted Tommy and his interpreter cordially and escorted them to President Peron’s door. The President greeted Tommy and his interpreter and after asking them to be seated, asked the reason for them coming. Pastor Hicks carefully explained to Peron the plans for the city – wide salvation – healing crusade planned. [...] He also asked for full rights for the evangelicals to meet in stadiums and arenas of the nation. [...] At this meeting President Peron sat down and signed the total freedom for the evangelical church in Argentina.
And lastly, this site:
Tommy Hicks returned the next day and was soon ushered into the presence of this feared leader. He quickly explained that he wanted to conduct a salvation-healing campaign in a large stadium, with press and radio coverage. [...] Needless to say Peron gave Tommy everything he requested. The Atlantic Stadium with a seating capacity of 25,000 was rented. Soon overwhelming crowds forced them to relocate to the Huracane Football Stadium with a seating capacity of 110,000.
Are there reputable sources either confirming or refuting whether Juan Peron ever granted free access to the radio, the press and the Atlantic and Huracán stadiums to a foreign preacher named Tommy Hicks and his evangelism committee in 1954?
