Beauford Rupert Fitzwilliam Carter, Baron Carter, was a British-born New Devonian military commander who commanded the colony's forces during World War II before becoming Commander of the Commonwealth Forces in Antarctica in 1947, a position he held for a record 16 years. He rose to prominence in the years following World War II as one of the key opponents of Russo-Antarctic nationalism, before entering politics and eventually becoming the Dominion's Governor-General in the 1960s.

A controversial and polarizing figure, he is regarded by some as a national hero whose actions kept New Devon together during a period of turmoil; while others consider him a harsh commander who used his position to oppress the Dominion's Russian population. Almost exactly one year after being presented with the Antarctic Tuzelmann Award in 1966, he was shot dead in the South Pole Station by Terenti Mishnev, a member of the Russian Continental Army.
