Manning was born May 16, 1831 in Albany, New York. He was educated in the public schools and then entered the world of commerce. At the age of 11, Manning went to work for the Albany Atlas, which consolidated with the Argus in 1856. Manning became editor in 1865 and owner in 1873.
In November 1884, Manning married Mary Margaretta Fryer (1844-1928), daughter of William John Fryer and Margaret Livingston (Crofts) Fryer.
Manning's political career was very successful as well. He became chairman of the New York Democratic committee in 1881. He resigned in 1885, having been appointed Secretary of the Treasury by President Grover Cleveland in March. Manning resigned on March 31, 1887; the cause was due to ill health.
Death and legacy
An engraved portrait of Manning appears on U.S. paper money, on the series 1886 20.00 silver certificates. Some of these notes are referred to as "diamondbacks" due to their unusual reverse design and they are scarce.
There is a memorial to Manning in the Cathedral of All Saints (Albany, New York).
