The Wisdom of the Ages Athenaeum:
A Rare Book Exhibit
An extraordinary educational experience designed to put forth a body of ideas, moral habits and beliefs, conventions and customs of the past to bridge time itself, and to invite students, faculty, and the public alike to join in intellectual conversations.
The Remnant Trust made available to the general public at WVU, 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 has always been to provide the opportunity for people to hold, examine, read and discuss the pieces of the collection.
