Daniel Manning (May 16, 1831 – December 24, 1887) was an American businessman, journalist, and politician most notable for having served as the 37th United States Secretary of the Treasury.[1]

Born 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 later consolidated with the Argus in 1856 where he became the editor in 1865 and owner in 1873.[2]

Manning's political career was very successful as well. He served as the chairman of the New York Democratic committee from 1881[3] to 1885[4], and later was appointed U.S. Secretary of the Treasury by President Grover Cleveland in March 1885.[5] Manning resigned from this post in February 1887 due to ill health.[6]

He died later that year in Albany of Bright's disease.[7] 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.
