Daniel Manning

Daniel Manning (May 16, 1831 – December 24, 1887) was an American businessman, journalist, and politician. He became chairman of the New York Democratic committee in 1881, resigning in 1885 when he was appointed as the 37th United States secretary of the treasury by President Grover Cleveland. He retired two years later due to health issues, and died the same year at his home in Albany, New York. This engraved portrait of Manning was created by the Department of the Treasury's Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) for a BEP presentation album.
