October 4, 1960: "An inquest will be held Tuesday afternoon into the shooting death of a retired doctor from the Seattle suburb of Bothell who Monday became Idaho's second hunting fatality in as many days in the primitive are east of Grangeville. Dr. Manch N. Garhart, 73, was fatally wounded in the stomach while hunting in a creek bed above Elk City and near the Black Hawk lookout station some 60 miles east of Grangeville. A companion, Rue Dewey, about 60, Bothell, told Idaho County Coroner Dr. William Cone that he 'blazed away' at a deer he saw on the opposite side of Siegle Creek. After the animal bounded away, Dewey said he heard a strange noise and, on checking his line of fire, found his friend Garhart mortally wounded." (Idaho State Journal)
