Introduction Video to The Remnant Trust, Inc.
The Remnant Trust, Inc. exists to elevate educational standards and the public’s understanding of individual liberty and human dignity through the precedent setting, hands on availability of the world’s great ideas in original form. Believing that great ideas belong to everyone, The Remnant Trust makes available, a world class collection of manuscripts, 1st and early edition works for use in original form. Collections of this magnitude and quality are found deep in the archives of prestigious institutions, under lock and key and accessible only to a privileged few. By contrast, The Remnant Trust’s vision is to provide the opportunity for individuals to hold, examine, read and discuss manuscripts, 1st and early editions of such works as the Declaration of Independence, The Magna Carta, The Federalist Papers, Mary Wollstonecraft, Frederick Douglass, Aristotle, Marx, Smith, Hobbes and many more. The Remnant Trust is a place where everyone from scholars to school age children can come and handle, read and learn from the wisdom contained in these works, ideas that span over 2500 years. Additionally segments of the collection are loaned to universities, colleges, secondary schools, and other venues to host multi-disciplinary exhibits and provide access to those unable to travel to the collection located in Lubbock, Texas at Texas Tech University.
