Edward Codrington Carrington
Edward Codrington Carrington was born April 10, 1872, in Washington, D.C. He was admitted to the Maryland bar in 1894 and established his legal practice in Baltimore, specializing in corporation law.
A supporter of the Progressive faction of the REPUBLICAN PARTY, Carrington served as campaign manager in Maryland for THEODORE ROOSEVELT in the primary election of 1912 while a member of the Republican National Convention. During the same year, he advocated a Progressive National Convention and acted as a delegate to this convention.

Carrington initiated proceedings in Maryland to combine the Progressives once again with the Republicans, and in 1914 he was nominated by the Republicans for a seat in the U.S. Senate, but was defeated. He spent the remainder of his life as a participant in business activities, which included his service as president of the Hudson River Navigation Corporation.
On December 30, 1938, Carrington died in Baltimore.
