Hood River News, Aug. 29, 1968: Manser Day at the Fruit Tree Sunday found the guest of honor ready to sit down after a long day of visiting. Estimates of the crowd gathering to honor the artist varied from 400 to 600. Six Manser works of art were sold, along with several others at the gallery. The event honored Manser, dean of area artists. Seated beside the refreshment table, he sips apple juice and chats with guests. Standing behind him is his granddaughter, Mrs. Marilyn Avolio.
