Armour and Company was an American slaughterhouse and meatpacking company founded in Chicago, Illinois, in 1867 by the Armour brothers, led by Philip Danforth Armour. Frederick Stewart Manning was born on August 13, 1874, the son of Thomas E. Manning, a cobbler and Freemason. Frederick was born in Port Huron, Michigan, but he spent much of his childhood in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 1929 Manning was commissioned to paint a portrait of Charles Lindbergh, Jr. (which now hangs in the Minnesota Historical Society).
