The Remnant Trust

With the generous support of Barbara and Jim Whitton, the Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities and the Department of History has regularly hosted original documents from The Remnant Trust.  Documents reside in Cornette Library and in the Research Center at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.  The highlight of the residency of these treasures is a scholarly presentation , open to the public, and including the rare opportunity to handle the materials directly, to touch history itself. 

Any questions or comments may be directed to Dr. Bruce C. Brasington,
