Albert Carrington (January 8, 1813 - September 19, 1889) was an apostle and member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Born in Royalton, Vermont and graduating from Dartmouth College, Carrington began a career in law before moving to the Wisconsin Territory and encountering the LDS Church, into which he and his wife were baptized in 1841. He moved with the Mormons westwards and helped establish one of the first newspapers in Salt Lake City. He also served as Brigham Young's secretary, at which point he was hired by Howard Stansbury as part of the latter's expedition to survey the Great Salt Lake. Carrington later lost his prestige in the LDS Church and was excommunicated for extramarital affairs, but late in life was rebaptized and was posthumously ordained as an elder of the church.
