Albert Vincent Casey (February 28, 1920 – July 10, 2004) was a former United States Postmaster General, publisher of The Los Angeles Times, and an attendee of the Bohemian Grove. He received two degrees from Harvard University in 1948.

Positions held:

Casey was a member of the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors from 2002 August until his death.

A well-known aphorism is "Casey's Law": If Something Can Go Right It Should. The phrase is also the title of Casey's business autobiography Casey's Law, published in 1997.

Casey believed in management by a group of four: he claimed that any business should consist of "a person to make the stuff, a person to sell the stuff, a bean counter to keep score, and the boss."

As President of the Resolution Trust Corporation, he oversaw failed savings-and-loans, such as Madison Guaranty in Little Rock, Arkansas.

As reported by Casey in September 1992, White House counsel C. Boyden Gray called Casey about the Madison referral. Casey said he would check into it, but then heard from Gray again, who told Casey to forget about the Madison case. Gray later said he did not recall the call.

While President of the Resolution Trust Corporation, he was asked to step down by Bill Clinton in February 1993. In April 1993, be stepped down, having served 17 months. He also said his friend Roger Altman, Deputy Treasury Secretary under Bill Clinton, monitored and blocked Whitewater investigations.

Casey at 84 died in Dallas, Texas.
