This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 8 January, 1959. "A party of 17 Amercian woolgrowers paid a short visit to the city today in the course of a tour through New Zealand to study wool development in this country. They were met at the Palmerston North Airport this morning by the public relations officer (Mr M.R. Jensen) and later visited Massey Agricultural College. Some of the party are seen in conversation with Mr Jensen (left). They are (left to right): Messers H. [unreadable] (Wyoming), F. Roush (Wyoming), J Gilger (South Dakota), L. Nadasdy (Minnesota), leader of the party, and R. Jarrett (South Dakota)."
