Kristine Manning

Kristine Manning

Kristine Anastasio Manning, 46, of Chapel Hill, N.C., formerly of Princeton, died April 29 in Chapel Hill. The cause was neuroendocrine cancer.

She was an envstoryironmentalist and author of The Ecology of Place, a book describing a world in which land is consumed sparingly, cities and towns are vibrant and green, local economies thrive, and citizens work together to create places of enduring value.

After graduating from Princeton Day School in 1981 and Harvard University, Mrs. Manning worked at the Natural Resources Defense Council in New York City. She continued her education at Duke University, where she earned masters degrees in environmental management and public policy.

As director and vice president for programs at Island Press in Washington, D.C., she focused on finding ways to protect the oceans and discover ways to conserve functioning ecosystems around fast developing cities and towns. Her work as president of the Haw River Assembly near her home in North Carolina made it possible for neighbors and visitors to continue to experience the beauty of this clean river. In recent years, she helped create and oversee her brother Trey Anastasio’s non-profit endeavor, the Seven Below Arts Initiative, an Artist-in-Residence program established to foster artistic development and arts education in Vermont.

For the past several years, she had devoted much of her time and energy to her son Jason’s school, the Carolina Friends School in Durham, N.C., discovering in that community the satisfaction of citizens working together to create a place of enduring value.

She is survived by her husband, Michael Manning, and her son, Jason of Chapel Hill; and her mother, father, stepmother, and brother.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to The Neuroendocrine Tumor Clinic, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, 12902 Magnolia Drive, UTC-FOUND, Tampa, Fla. 33612, indicating that funds should be allocated to Fund No. 33438; or to The Carolina Friends School/Afghan Sister School Project, Carolina Friends School, 4809 Friends School Road, Durham, N.C. 27705; or to The Seven Below Arts Initiative, at
