Reginald West Manning (April 8, 1905 – March 10, 1986), professionally known as Reg Manning, was an American illustrator, cartoonist, and artist. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Manning soon ended up in Phoenix, Arizona, where he received his only formal art training as a high school student. Following graduation, Manning worked as a freelancer until 1926, when he was hired by The Arizona Republic as an artist and photographer. Mannings cartoons proved popular for their artistry, sharp it, and intellectualism. By the end of his career, Manning produced over 15,000 editorial cartoons syndicated in over 170 newspapers. He won the 1951 Pulitzer Prize in Editorial Cartooning for his cartoon 'Hats'. Manning also received awards from Freedoms Foundation, the 1957 National Safety Council Award, and the Abraham Lincoln Award in 1971 and 1972. His final appeared just months before his death. Over the course of his career, Manning also illustrated stationery, jewelry, table cloths, water colors, and postcards. His maps include pictorial maps of Arizona, Northern Arizona, California, New Mexico, Boulder Dam, San Francisco Bay, and the world. Manning died in Arizona, where an archive of his original cartoons is held at the Arizona State University Library. His personal papers and correspondence are preserved at Syracuse University.
