On August 15. 2005 Brian Bex,
founder of the Remnant Trust, personally delivered over 48 major rare and first
edition manuscripts to be exhibited and used at the University of Farmington
during the Fall Semester 2005. The exhibition was celebrated with a dinner
held on-campus and attended by Mr. Bex, community leaders, students, and members
faculty and administration of UMF.
Brian Bex spoke briefly about his
belief that the Remnant Trust will help the next generation know and understand
the great writers, philosophers, and thinkers who changed our culture and gave
us the concepts of freedom and individual dignity we enjoy today. By
seeing, touching and reading the original works, students gain a better sense of
the reality of the past and its continuity with the present.
