Did you have Daniel Evans as your teacher in the mid-1970s?
Do you remember the exact years he was here at Manning?
Connie found his obituary and I was able to grab a full-size image of him from the website.

I'm always looking for obituaries, pictures, and information for Manning's teachers, even if they weren't here that long, so if you have some pictures of Dan with his students, and/or other Manning connected pictures please let me know.

Also, if you hear about or find obituaries of other former Manning teachers, please send me the link/information...

I was just scrolling through the website and saw your post regarding Daniel Evans.
I had him as a Science teacher in Junior High (SY 77-78 & 78-79). Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of him, but I do remember him.
I remember that he always reminded me of "Grizzly Adams" He was tall, big, and his beard...
Another thing I do remember is that there were a bunch of us girls that had a hard time keeping our mouths shut and we were always in trouble for talking too much (which is not surprising at all... LOL ) ... or at least that's what my parents told me when they got home from parent/teacher conferences...

Dan was my Junior High Science Teacher in the 1977-1978 year. He replaced Duane Boersma.
I had Duane in 7th Grade and Daniel in 8th Grade.
On humorous side, we referred to him as Grizzly Evans.
My guess is he was only in Manning 2-3 years at most.
