Thomas Jefferson celebration includes historic book exhibit
January 10, 2018
The Joplin Globe - As part of the Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School's 25th anniversary
celebration, its students on Wednesday got their first chance to handle a copy of
Thomas Aquinas' "Summa Theologica" from 1475. Well, it was their first chance unless
they'd previously found one of the other two copies known to exist.
The book, along with numerous other original, hard-copy texts and documents from throughout
American and world history, were presented Wednesday and put on display by Kris Bex,
president of The Remnant Trust, an educational foundation based at Texas Tech University
that preserves historic documents.
