Edwin Corning (September 30, 1883 Albany, New York - August 7, 1934 Bar Harbor, Hancock County, Maine) was an American businessman and politician from New York. He was Lieutenant Governor of New York from 1927 to 1928.


He was the son of Erastus Corning (1827-1897, son of Erastus Corning) and Mary (Parker) Corning (daughter of Amasa J. Parker). He was educated at The Albany Academy and Groton School, and graduated B.A. from Yale University in 1906. Then he began work for the Ludlum Steel Company in Watervliet, New York, and became its President in 1910.

On November 25, 1908, he married Louise Maxwell, and their children were Erastus Corning 2nd, Louise Corning, Harriet Corning and Edwin Corning, Jr. (b. 1919).

In 1928, when Al Smith planned to run for President, the Democrats asked Corning to run for Governor, but he declined because of ill health.

He died on the operating table during a second leg amputation which was due to gangrene derived from diabetes. He was buried at the Albany Rural Cemetery in Menands, New York.
