Biography

Levi H. Manning was born second in a family of four brothers and four sisters in Halifax County, North Carolina to Vannoy Hartrog Manning, a U.S. Representative from Mississippi and an officer in the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia during the American Civil War.

In 1883, during summer break while attending the University of Mississippi, Manning and a fraternity brother acquired the use of a circus elephant. The elephant escaped from Manning and rampaged through town. Upon hearing the story, Manning's mother advised him to get out of town before his father found out. Consequently he came to Tucson, Arizona in early spring 1884. Upon arrival Manning worked as a reporter for The Daily Arizona Citizen and later The Arizona Daily Star.
