The Nauvoo Temple, c. 1846, a daguerreotype by Lucian R. Foster

Lucian Rose Foster (1806–1846) was a photographer, accountant, bookkeeper, and clerk who served as member of the central correspondence committee for the Joseph Smith presidential campaign, 1844 and was admitted to the Council of Fifty. His wives were Harriet Eliza Burr, Mary Ann Graham, Ann Mariah Still, and Eliza Leeman Ulrich.

Foster was born in New Marlboro, Berkshire County, Massachusetts. He joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 1840, and was appointed clerk of church conference the same year, and branch president the following year.[1]

Foster brought the daguerreotype to Nauvoo, Illinois, shortly after its introduction and produced the first photographic images of Nauvoo and its citizens from 1844 to 1846.[2][3]

Around 1846, Foster moved back to New York City, joined James Strang's breakaway Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Strangite), and was then excommunicated by the original organization. He died in Salt Lake City in 1846.[1]
