Daniel Manning (May 16, 1831 – December 24, 1887) was an American businessman, journalist, and politician.

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.
