Daniel Manning, Secretary of the Treasury
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.
  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.
  Mary Margaretta Fryer was closely identified with the social life of President Cleveland's second administration as well as the first. Fryer was a native of Albany, and a daughter of William J. fryer, an honored citizen of the state of New York. On her mother's side, she descendeded from Lord Livingston, and her ancestry did good service during Colonial times in shaping the affairs of New York State. She was Regent of the Albany Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and interested in the work of that organization.
  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
He died in Albany home in 1887, from Brights disease, and was buried in Albany Rural Cemetery there.
An engraved portrait of Manning appears on U.S. paper money, on the series 1886 20 Dollars 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).
