Benedictine College to Host Historic Documents

KSAL StaffAugust 14, 2014

Some of the world’s most historic documents will be on display for a week in September at Benedictine College in Atchison.

The exhibition from the Remnant Trust features a rare printing of the Declaration of Independence from 1776, a page from one of the first Gutenberg Bibles from 1455, a copy of the Magna Carta from 1576 and other items.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports the documents will be on display in Benedictine’s Ferrell Academic Center from Sept. 11 through Sept. 19.

The exhibit will be free and open to the public. It is made possible by a donation from the Haverty Family Foundation. Michael Haverty, a former Benedictine board member, had worked earlier with the Remnant Trust.
