The Remnant Trust makes its collection of ancient and rare documents and volumes available to colleges, universities and other organizations for use by students, faculty, scholars and members of the public who are encouraged to read, hold and discuss these original works. The collection includes the great writings of civilization, from Plato and the King James Bible to Homer, Galileo, Luther, Calvin, Milton, Jefferson and Lincoln.
Dr. James Hallmark, former provost/vice president for Academic Affairs, Dr. J. Patrick O'Brien, WTAMU president, Dr. David Baum, director of the Remant Trust at WTAMU, and Kris Bex, president of The Remnant Trust, have created a unique and long-term partnership to bring these rare books, public lectures and classroom opportunities to the Texas Panhandle.
Each year, WT hosts public presentations, conducts community outreach, teaches courses based in the Trust's primary documents, supports research and follows the Remnant Trust's motto that "great ideas belong to everyone." Public lectures are presented each fall at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, and works are on display in the museum's Research Center for students and the public to use and enjoy. Courses are offered through the University and the Office of Continuing Education, and the public is encouraged to read and hold these rare pieces of history.
The Remant Trust Experience at WTAMU is generously sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Steve Urban, Mr. and Mrs. Dyke Rogers, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Cambridge, Mary Emeny, Barbara and Jim Whitton, Mays Foundation, Mr. and Mrs. David Moore, Pattilou Dawkins, Dr. and Mrs. William Hale and an anonymous donor.
