Event description
The John E. Walker Department of Economics is making available a world-class collection of manuscripts and first and early edition books!

About this Event

Join us Sept. 25, from 4:30 to 6 p.m., in 100 Lowry Hall.

Attendees will be able to see, hold and read these works dealing with topics of individual liberty and dignity in their original form.

Housed at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, The Remnant Trust is an educational foundation that makes its growing collection of manuscripts, first edition and early works available to colleges, universities and other organizations.

“Those who attend will have hands-on access to some of the world’s great ideas in their original form,” said Brad Hobbs, clinical professor of economics in the College of Business. “Great works, such as the Magna Carta, The Federalist Papers and writings by Aristotle, Plato, Marx, Frederick Douglass and Thomas Paine, are a few examples of the publications attendees will be able to hold, examine and discuss at the event.”

Kristophor Bex, president of The Remnant Trust, will discuss the transformative nature of holding, touching and reading original works from an earlier era.
