Scherer’s family were among the many who immigrated to this area from Germany in the early 1860’s, and his father, G.W. Scherer Sr., published the only local German-language newspaper in the late 1880’s. G.W. Jr. and Jeanne Kress continue with the history of several early Mankato newspapers to the mid-1950’s.
