Louis Will (1857–1932) was Progressive Party mayor of Syracuse during 1914-16. He was the only third party candidate elected mayor of Syracuse in the last century. In a year with low voter turnout, Will was elected with only 9,858 votes.
Son of German immigrants Anton and Rosina Will, he left school early after his father's death to run the family candle-making business, eventually known as Will & Baumer.
