King James Bible Topic of Remnant Trust Lecture Oct. 14 The first edition of the King James Bible will be available for viewing when Dr. James Hallmark, provost/vice president for academic affairs, presents “The First Edition of the King James Bible” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14 at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum’s Hazlewood Lecture Hall. The lecture is the second in a series of three on West Texas A&M University’s semester-long exhibition of The Remnant Trust.
The Remnant Trust, a public educational foundation, is a repository for rare and first-edition books related to the world’s great ideas that have helped in the development of western civilization. The foundation works on the belief that “great ideas belong to everyone” and readily makes available a growing collection of works for use by students, faculty and the public. WTAMU is housing 50 volumes through Dec.1, thanks to financial support from the University’s Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The Oct. 14 presentation is free and open to the public. Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Swindell will sponsor a 5:30 p.m. reception in honor of the students at Ascension Academy prior to Hallmark’s lecture.
