Memorable Manitobans: Frank Manning (1869-1945)

Educator, editor and publisher.

Born at Bowmanville, Ontario on 18 August 1869, son of John Manning and Mary Hodges, brother of Arthur J. Manning, he was educated at Bowmanville and the Hamilton Collegiate. He came to Manitoba in 1892 and was the first teacher at Roland School, later teaching at Cypress River School and Swan Lake School. He learned the printing business while working for four years with the Roland News (which he founded) and Holland Observer newspapers. He moved to Reston in 1905 where, in partnership with his brother, he established the Reston Recorder, a four- to six-page newspaper with a circulation of over 800. He and wife Frances Lauretta Robinson (1872-1957) had three children: Helen Frances Manning (1902-?), Wilma Ruth Manning (1906-?), and Frank Russell Manning (1913-?). He was a director of the Canadian Weekly Newspapers Association, and a member of the Reston Agricultural Society and Reston Masonic Lodge. He died at Winnipeg on 16 February 1945 and was buried in the Reston Cemetery.
